Private mental health services provider Elysium Healthcare has expanded its neurological services with the acquisition of Chalkdown House in Swindon, Wiltshire.
Chalkdown House is a 20-bed, neurobehavioural site for people with a non-progressive acquired brain injury. The site has been run by The Disabilities Trust since 2013 and is rated as ’good’ overall by the Care Quality Commission.
‘The Chalkdown House site was purpose-built for the neurobehavioural client group and the facilities are outstanding,’ said Professor Nick Alderman, clinical director of Elysium’s neurobehavioural rehabilitation services. ‘The site will provide a much-needed service.’
Joy Chamberlain, chief executive officer of Elysium Healthcare, said: ‘We are delighted to be further extending our services and we look forward to opening the hospital in the New Year.’
Elysium is backed by private equity firm BC Partners and was launched in 2016. The provider has more than 76 sites offering learning disability services, neurological services and specialist mental healthcare across England and Wales.
