Healthcare charity Nuffield Health has agreed to acquire five hospitals from Aspen Healthcare in a deal expected to complete on Thursday.

The hospitals are Parkside Private Hospital in Wimbledon, Highgate Private Hospital in London, The Holly Private Hospital in Essex, Cancer Centre London and The Edinburgh Clinic.

Concurrently, Nuffield Health has also entered into long-term leases with Aspen Healthcare’s owner, NorthWest Healthcare Properties REIT, in respect of the five hospitals.

Nuffield Health’s chief executive Steve Gray said: “This strategic acquisition will improve our representation in local communities within the M25 corridor and across the east coast of Scotland, connecting up our hospital and fitness and wellbeing services. This will enable us to support more people in these communities to live healthy, get better and stay well.

“We’re in a unique position as the UK’s largest healthcare charity – with a strong purpose and connected health offering – to meet the rising demand for healthcare services. Our team are looking forward to work alongside Aspen’s teams, who have shown how talented they are during the challenges of the pandemic and in operating successfully for many years to deliver excellent patient care.”
