Aged care pioneer Viv Padman resurfaces as Premier Health Care pushes $130M development pipeline – six facilities in planning or construction

Published on

As we covered here, the aged care veteran opened The Waterford at Hervey Bay in Queensland under his new brand 12 months ago – the first of five development sites he and wife Florence kept after selling their 13 Padman Healthcare facilities to Estia in 2014 for $150 million.

The group now has six facilities in its development program including a $20 million facility in Myrtle Bank, SA; a $22 million home on the Sunshine Coast; and a $25 million Gold Coast home under construction; plus, a $20 million facility at Hindmarsh, SA; a $30 million home in Findon, SA; and a $20 million facility in Gympie in planning, The Advertiser reports.

Premier Health Care has also recently acquired two more facilities in SA, and says it plans to reinstate a clinical leadership and coaching program to identify and train emerging leaders in the aged care workforce.
