The merger is a logical fit, given both aged care providers’ values driven approach to person-directed care and service delivery.
Amanda Vivian, CEO Baptistcare WA, and Charles Moore, CEO BaptistCare NSW & ACT, say a merger of the two Baptist-affiliated entities will allow the combined organisations to deliver more sustainable care in the aged care sector.
“Aged care is evolving and highly complex, and we believe the time is right to merge our organisations,” they said.
“Between our organisations, there are over 125 years’ experience delivering exceptional care and services that have a real and meaningful impact in people’s lives.”
“We feel confident that a merger between the two Baptist organisations will deliver enormous benefits for our valued employees, volunteers, residents, customers and their families.”
“Strategically, this merger allows two like-minded, well governed organisations to join forces and be stronger as one. This will afford us scale and capacity to operate sustainably in an increasingly challenging market undergoing rapid change,” they said.
Charles Moore, CEO of BaptistCare NSW & ACT, leads the newly merged organisation as Chief Executive Officer.
Western Australia’s Amanda Vivian leads the operations in WA, and is part of the Executive Team of the newly merged organisation.
There are no changes to the care and services for residents and customers in either State.
The merged entity has a combined revenue of $520 million, a workforce of more than 5,000 people, 750 volunteers, 33 residential aged care facilities, 9,000 home care customers and 25 retirement villages.
