Regis Healthcare

Origins

The owners, Jamie and Ben Morgan, had already established a successful social care company named CPI Care Limited, and Jamie having worked previously in a secure hospital, had always hoped to expand the business portfolio into healthcare. They were motivated to provide a service in Wales that not only didn't already exist, but was a needed resource and would help change the lives of the people of Wales. The owners’ parents sold their house for them to open their first business so they always knew that they would need to prove that the sacrifice their parents made for them was not in vain. The main business challenge was proving themselves in an industry they were not known in and it was a challenge to be the first Welsh low secure unit.

Success Factor

The business was fortunate in helping to bring back young people of Wales back from units in England, meaning that they could receive care near their families. They were also able to demonstrate that the firm could provide a good standard of care and so built up relationships with NHS commissioners. Finally, clear goals of service development and expansion were set.

The Future

The goal within Regis Healthcare is to continue to provide a great service and to ensure that service users are receiving the best care possible. There is also the aim of expanding the business and developing additional services where needed, and this has already started with the purchase of a new unit in England which will be opened in mid 2020.
