Springfield Healthcare Group

Operator of care homes and villages

Company overview

Springfield Healthcare Group develops and manages care facilities across Yorkshire, Humberside and the North East.

The company pioneered the care village model, offering a full range of care options from day care, residential, dementia and nursing care, combined with private independent living apartments.

I turned down a few offers from private equity houses because​ the offers didn’t feel like the right fit.​ But BGF was confident in my growth plan. Other people I spoke​ to wanted to push the business harder but BGF never once said​ "we think you can be more aggressive". They just said, "we like​ this plan and we'll support it". That was very refreshing.​ When we’re looking to buy sites, their backing brings an extra layer of comfort to the external parties we deal with.
