KCP investment boosts Routes Healthcare

Domiciliary care business, Routes Healthcare has received an investment from Leeds-based Key Capital Partners (KCP), the first investment to be made from KCP’s new £80m growth fund.

Routes Healthcare was established in 2005 by current managing director Andrew Healing, and since then has grown to encompass nine offices serving public sector bodies, blue chip organisations, SMEs and private individuals.

The branch network, covering many parts of the North of England, is extensive and located within Blackpool, Macclesfield, Cheadle, Liverpool, Preston, Rochdale, Salford, Stockport, Bradford, York, Settle, Newcastle and Tameside.

Andrew Healing, managing director of Routes Healthcare, said: "With its proven experience in the healthcare industry, KCP was the ideal investment partner for us to assist with our continued growth.  Excellence in all we do is the company’s philosophy and the expertise of their senior advisers and the invaluable strategic advice they can bring to management teams were crucial factors in our decision. 

"Maintaining excellence in the clinical care we deliver is imperative and we are already enjoying working closely with KCP to ensure this is managed safely as the business grows."

Mike Fell, investment partner at KCP’s London office, comments: "Building on our deep sector expertise working with companies like Hallam Medical and Nurse Plus, this is a great opportunity to support what is already a very successful business, to reach the next stage of its development.

"Andrew has built a strong reputation for Routes Healthcare; it is trusted by Clinical Commissioning Groups for providing quality, personal service and value for money.  Our investment will provide development capital to support the continued expansion of the network of branches both organically and through acquisition while ensuring that the business’ ethos of ‘always putting the patient first’ remains central to all services."
