New Owners at Parkside

Media Release 5 April 2004

New Owners at Parkside

Retirement village and rest home operators Summerset today announced they have purchased the Parkside Hospital Continuing Care business on Kennedy Road, Napier, and will take over its management immediately.

“Summerset has been operating retirement villages for 10 years now and, with our considerable experience in managing continuing care health facilities, we are confident we will soon have it meeting both our standards of service and those expected by the District Health Board”, says Norah Barlow, chief executive, Summerset.

The premises will be re-named Summerset by the Park, in line with Summerset’s seven other retirement villages throughout the North Island. There is a Summerset retirement village in Havelock North.

“With this purchase we have become responsible for the residents who currently live there. Getting to know these residents and their families, understanding their needs and ensuring the change of ownership has minimal impact on them, is our first priority.”

“Our aim is to provide a comfortable homelike environment for our residents and their families, while ensuring excellent nursing care and hospital facilities are maintained,” says Ms Barlow.

Summerset intends to assess the standard of accommodation and the levels of service for residents against its service levels at other facilities.

“We have a Quality Programme for assessing and improving services. If necessary we will make changes to ensure the services provided and the professionalism of staff meets our exacting standards.”

A manager, who has long term experience in continuing care, will be appointed by Summerset to run the facility.
