140 Assisted living units sold in Zeist
The Charim Care Group Foundation (Charim) has sold 140 assisted living units to the Bewaring Mirtehof Foundation, an entity of Rubens Capital Partners.The complex consists of two structures of 8 storeys each (‘Mirtehof’ and ‘De Bladerkroon’) located at Molenweg 50 in the town of Zeist.
We have taken the strategic decision to sell the residential care complex because we wish to focus on providing the best possible home healthcare at this location. The new owner will lease the units directly to the residents, who will continue to be able to count on Charim’s home healthcare services. We will lease part of the common area and support facilities back from the new owner so that we can continue to provide specific healthcare and other services to the residents. We have also signed a cooperation agreement with the new owner stipulating that amenities such as the restaurant and place of worship will remain available to the residents. This is a complementary alliance between the investor and the care provider. Its aim is to provide real added value, both in terms of operational efficiency and client satisfaction. We at Charim feel that this is a win-win situation for all stakeholders, including the residents.
More and more healthcare institutions have decided to remove real estate from their books and have opted for multi-year leases. The sale and partial leaseback construction, combined with the cooperation agreement, mean that residents can continue to count on the availability of general healthcare services and facilities, and that Charim remains the designated healthcare provider. We have succeeded in striking a deal that benefits both buyer and seller thanks to thorough preparation and the early involvement of the Board for the Restructuring of Care Institutions.
