Balhousie Care Group, celebrating its 25th anniversary, has announced a new chief executive officer, Steve White.
Formerly CEO of Sussex Housing & Care and Blackwood, Steve White has also been at the leading edge of business performance and employee engagement and motivation.
Tony Banks will continue as chairman, while Steve White – in a newly created role – will help take Balhousie Care Group forward and prepare for the future, focussing on innovation and continuing the person-centred approach to elderly care.
The re-opening this month of Balhousie Alastrean House, at Tarland, Aberdeenshire, and a bank refinancing allows for investment in the business, staff and buildings.
Steve White (right above) said: “I’m thrilled and excited to be joining Balhousie Care Group at a strategic point in its journey of delivering excellent residential, nursing and specialist care. With initiatives such as Together We’re Great, we put people front and centre to everything we do. Now it’s time to take the skills, talents and commitment of our staff into the next quarter century.
“With the group in strong profit and having just secured re-financing from our bank partners, we are in our healthiest financial shape ever. That means we can continue to provide top quality care for our 900 residents.”
Each Balhousie care home will hold their own internal birthday party on 14 September to celebrate the occasion with all staff and residents.
