The aged care group – owned by industry veteran Dr Shane Moran – has held a ‘soft opening’ and welcomed the first residents of its new facility (pictured) in Pudong on the east side of Shanghai. The facility is located in the grounds of the large private international hospital, the Shanghai International Medical Centre (SIMC).
As we reported here last year, the project is co-owned by one of China’s largest developers, Greenland Hong Kong (70%), Provectus (20%) and the SIMC (10%).
The development is by no means the first venture into the Chinese aged care market for Dr Moran (a fluent Mandarin speaker).
As we reported here, in August 2017 Dr Moran launched a partnership (known as Sunshine Australia) between Provectus Care and Greenland HK to build five care facilities in China.
Provectus has since opened a 170-bed aged care facility in Wuxi and a 200-bed facility in Tiantong – both just outside of central Shanghai.
This new facility will have a heavy dementia care focus.
Provectus also operates five ‘luxury’ Australian aged care facilities across Sydney, Melbourne and the Gold Coast.
