Oakes Care Home Runner Up in National Awards 

Meridian Healthcare and Conroy Brook are celebrating achieving ‘Runner Up’ position for the Oakes Care Home in the national final of the Pinders Healthcare Design Awards.

Oakes Care Centre, Huddersfield

The annual Pinders Healthcare Design awards recognise best practice and design excellence in care homes throughout the UK and, following an intensive selection process where the judges assessed, analysed and compared all the excellent entries, the Oakes was shortlisted in the New Care Homes (Small) category. 

The presentation ceremony took place at Lords in London last week and the teams from both Meridian and Conroy Brook were delighted to have received the Runner Up position amongst such high calibre competition.

Meridian's Managing Director Susan Firth said: "Our vision for the care of older people has always been the provision of excellent quality care and facilities. Having the design of our care centres recognised in this way is a fantastic testament to the effort and thought put in by everyone involved with our facilities."

Conroy Brook CEO, Richard Conroy, added: “We are delighted that the Oakes has been recognised in these prestigious awards, and that we had the opportunity to work with Meridian once again. The development has brought back to life a redundant site, and we are proud to know that we have helped to create a vital facility that contributes to the health and wellbeing of the people of Kirklees.”

Those healthcare facilities shortlisted for the awards also received £500 to donate to a charity of their choice. As the Oakes is dedicated to the health and well-being of elderly residents, some of whom have a dementia related condition, they chose to give their donation to the Alzheimer’s Society in Huddersfield.
