NZ Aged Care Association welcomes Bupa

The country’s largest provider of aged residential care has joined the New Zealand Aged Care Association (NZACA).

With more than 4,200 care beds across 60 facilities, Bupa offers a broad range of services beyond residential care, including retirement villages, personal medical alarms and rehabilitation services.

Simon Wallace, Chief Executive of the NZACA said it was great to have Bupa as a member of the Association.

“The aged residential care sector needs to be a strong and united voice and having Bupa on board shows the industry is standing together at a time when we are facing significant challenges. It also recognises the value that NZACA brings in its representation of the whole sector.”

Grainne Moss, Managing Director of Bupa, said she was pleased to be a member of the NZACA and had enjoyed working constructively with the Association and its Board members over the past few months.

“With our shared commitment to older people in New Zealand, I look forward to assisting and working with the industry and the key peak body NZACA”.

As with all NZACA members, Mr Wallace said he was looking forward to supporting Bupa to help them achieve their goals. He would also welcome Bupa’s contribution in areas where they could make a difference.

Bupa’s membership of the Association took effect from yesterday and NZACA Chairman Simon O’Dowd said he was delighted to have Grainne Moss take up a position on the Board for the 2015-2016 year.
