Barchester Healthcare, the number one provider of high quality nursing and residential home care, is delighted to announce it is one of the biggest private mid-market companies, based on latest sales.
It has been ranked in the Top Track 250 League, published in The Sunday Times, which measures medium-sized private companies by sales growth over the last three years. Out of the 250 firms, Barchester Healthcare was also listed number one for the biggest sales rise.
This follows Barchester's rankings in the Fast Track 100 (4 December 2005) and as one of the top 100 Best Companies to Work For (2 March 2006) in which Barchester was number two in the top 20 Best Big Companies list.
Since the company began in 1993, Managing Director Mike Parsons has followed a vision to be the number one provider of high quality residential and nursing home care in the UK, offering exceptionally high standards of care, hotel-like facilities and gourmet food.
Now, with over 170 homes in the UK ranging from Lakeside Care Home in Jersey to Thurso, near John o' Groats in Scotland, it is evident that Mike Parsons has a winning formula.
Mike Parsons, Managing Director of Barchester, said: "We are thrilled to receive yet another endorsement for our company and its 13,000 employees.
"It is especially gratifying coming after a number of recent awards for Barchester including the Best Company to Work For Award and our ranking in the Fast Track 100. It underlines the great work all the staff at Barchester accomplish on a daily basis."
Barchester prides itself on providing care to an exceptional standard. It currently has two major initiatives for its staff and residents which exemplify this approach.
Cooking With Care is a programme for Barchester's chefs which is associated with Paul Rankin, the Michelin star-winning celebrity chef. It is designed to improve the quality of food for residents.
Barchester in Bloom is an initiative led by Charlie Dimmock, the television gardener (Ground Force), and designed to reward staff and residents for their gardening skills at Barchester's homes.
