HealthNet Homecare (UK) Ltd first moved to Orbit Business Park at the end of last year, and with the additional unit now occupies c 32,000 sq ft and 3 out of the 6 units on the now full Business Park.
HealthNet Homecare (UK) Ltd is a team with over 100 years combined expertise in design, development and delivery of homecare services for patients, covering a range of medicines and therapy areas.
Kerry Hinton, Chief Executive Officer at HealthNet Homecare, said: “HealthNet are committed to working in partnership with, and supporting the NHS to deliver the highest levels of personalised treatment for patients at home or in a location of their choice.
“The additional space at Orbit Business Park is part of our strategic expansion plan to be able to offer additional capacity and flexibility of clinical homecare services to our NHS partners, both locally and on a National basis. We have already created over 30 new jobs at Swadlincote and we see ourselves very much as part of this community.
“We will continue to expand and grow and create new posts including skilled positions for our patient services team, homecare nurses and pharmacy roles. Orbit Business Park will become the new Headquarters for HealthNet whilst retaining our existing site in West Yorkshire.”
Whittle Jones acted on behalf of Northern Trust Company Ltd in the deal.
Caroline Jones, Lettings Manager at Whittle Jones Midlands, said: “We are delighted that HealthNet Homecare has expanded their operations at Orbit Business Park, and that the estate is now fully occupied.
“We rebranded the Business Park last year following substantial refurbishment works which saw the estate split back into 6 individual units following vacation of the former tenant who occupied the site as a whole. The site is now a key employment zone with the occupiers having created a number of new jobs, which is great for the local economy.”
Orbit Business Park extends to over 45,000 sq ft and is situated to the west of Swadlincote, approximately 4 miles south east of Burton upon Trent and 10 miles south of Derby.
