Cornerstone Healthcare secures funding for renovation of care home in Birmingham

by Kirsty Kirsty

Virgin Money have agreed funding on the multi-million-pound project which will see the renovation of the former ‘Little Sisters of the Poor’ care home, St Joseph’s in Harborne, just 5 miles south west of Birmingham city centre.

Once renovated and re-launched, the service will provide much needed care for people with complex and challenging behaviours associated with neurological degenerative needs and a mental health diagnosis. This 76-bed development will add to Cornerstone’s existing services in Hampshire, Surrey, Somerset and Bristol* and will bring over 140 new jobs to the local area.

Graham Harper, Senior Director of Health & Social Care at Virgin Money said: “Cornerstone Healthcare’s decision to extend their services into the Midlands marks a significant milestone in their journey towards enhancing complex and specialist healthcare accessibility and quality in the UK. As a longstanding advocate for innovative healthcare solutions, Virgin Money is proud to stand alongside Cornerstone Healthcare in this endeavour.”

Cornerstone CEO, Paul Hayes, commented: “Our ongoing relationship with Virgin Money has been key to our recent growth and development. Securing the support of Virgin Money for this exciting and innovative project lays the foundation for Cornerstone’s latest phase of expansion into the West Midlands, where we look forward to providing our specialist care pathway for people living with complex and challenging needs and working collaboratively to support the local health and social care system.”

Work on the site is due to start in May with a project completion of Summer 2025.
