Building a future for Hertfordshire: New nursing home for Wormley in 2021
Published: 06 Feb 2020
Hertfordshire County Council is building a brand new nursing home, the first of its kind in Hertfordshire.
A £10.9m contract has been awarded to Clegg construction who will begin work on the 77 bedroom care home along with 13 private residential properties. It will be built to provide exceptional standards of accommodation and facilities, and on completion in the Summer of 2021 the care home will be rented and operated by Gold Care.
Richard Roberts, Executive Member for Adult Care and Health at Hertfordshire County Council said: “There is a shortage of nursing homes both nationally and in the local area and so we anticipate this development with its modern facilities, spacious living accommodation and courtyard design will bridge the gap between supply and demand. The comfort and wellbeing of the future residents is key, so we are very pleased to have been able to purpose design and build a nursing home to provide affordable good quality care.”
Gold Care anticipate it will quickly become an active and lively nursing home with established links within the community, who will also benefit from the facilities.
