BROADMEADOW HEALTHCARE GROUP

The Premium Nursing Home Management Services in Ireland and to Emerging Markets

Who we are?

Broadmeadow Healthcare Group was established by Francis Whelan and Helena Moore. Broadmeadow Healthcare Group are Nursing Home Operators and also provide Management and Advisory services to Nursing Homes, in order to achieve clinical, regulatory and commercial performance objectives. Francis and Helena have many years’ experience in design, development and management of Nursing Homes. Their leadership of Kilbrew Recuperation and Nursing Care Ltd. over the past 12 years, in their respective roles as Provider Nominee and Person in Charge, has resulted in Kilbrew being regarded as a leading and award-winning Residential Care facility.

Through this experience Broadmeadow Healthcare have developed a methodology, and delivered real value to Nursing Home Owner Operators, to maximise the retention of existing bed supply, and assert Best Practice in Care of the Older Person. We are now building the organisation to continue and enhance these services and to deliver new capacity in Ireland and Emerging Markets in the Middle East and South-East Asia.

As a subsidiary of the Broadmeadow Healthcare Group, Broadmeadow Healthcare International (BHI) have harnessed Ireland’s renowned Healthcare reputation for professional skills, empathy and compassion, to partner with International Government Agencies and Private Healthcare Providers to assure the Best Care for the Older Person.

Our services methodology is based on practical implementation and experience of compliance with the HIQA National Standards for Residential Care Settings for Older People in Ireland , both through direct proprietary management, and through advising others to achieve successful outcomes. We are very conscious of the escalating national requirement for more Nursing Home Beds, rather than any reduction in availability.

With competence and direct experience of all aspects of Nursing Home Management, from Design and Development of expanded and new facilities, through to the resourcing and commercial optimization of re-capitalized Nursing Homes, we can provide options from consultancy through to transformational project management, which can also include a range of financial guidance .

Our objective is to improve the quality and standards of Healthcare, Health and Safety as outlined by HIQA, balanced with cost-effective commercial management of the resources required to enable such compliance. This includes consideration of maintenance and ongoing investment in new and improved facilities, and the proper staffing and skill models for assured clinical compliance.
