What Interim Means for Bluebird Care

Bluebird Care and Interim Healthcare have joined forces to become one of the largest care businesses globally.

“Our interest in Bluebird Care was driven by the fact that the founders have created a durable, scalable and profitable model of care delivered by a strong network of franchise owners.”

Kathleen Gilmartin,
President and CEO of Interim Healthcare Inc.

Both businesses will retain their own corporate identity as the takeover ensures that the senior management figures that have overseen the business’ growth to over 180 franchised locations across the UK and Ireland remain at the forefront of the business.

Paul Tarsey, Bluebird Care Managing Director and co-founder said: “We are very excited by this strategic partnership with such an experienced franchisor as Interim. Bluebird Care will now have access to knowledge and shared best practices in care delivery, training, marketing and financial benchmarks to fuel innovation and improve efficiencies in both Brands. Both companies will retain their own Brand identity which will cement our position still further as a major provider of care in the UK and the Republic of Ireland and our aim of being the care provider of choice.”

For exisiting franchise owners, the change will bolster their businesses’ credentials as one of the fastest growing and largest domiciliary care providers across the country and is likely to see improved operational techniques brought in to ensure the business’ progression into future expansion is both smooth and successful.
