The ownership of Vincentian Home and Hospital was transferred to South Wellington Lifecare Limited 1st April 2020. The decision to sell the Home was made by the Wellington Catholic Homes Trust when it recognised the Home needed to take a step forwards and the Trust was not well equipped to do this. The choice of a new owner was important and the Trust wanted someone whose background was recognised within the Aged Care sector.
Paul Renwick, the new General Manager, has extensive aged care experience having worked at a senior management level within the New Zealand aged care sector for a number of years. Paul is supported by a very experienced group of dedicated staff at Vincentian Home and Hospital who are all committed to providing quality care to all of our residents.
Vincentian Home was officially opened as a Rest Home on 26th May 1979 by the then Governor-General Sir Keith Holyoake. Additional land was acquired in 2004 to enable the building of a new wing extension, including hospital accommodation, making continuing hospital care available. This now means that should a change of health occur to any rest home resident, and hospital level care is required, the provision of such care is seamless. Since that time various refurbishing steps have been undertaken including the introduction of several bed-sit and conservatory rooms.
