SHEFFIELD’S Claremont Hospital has been bought by Aspen Healthcare.
Claremont, on Sandygate Road at Crosspool, was previously owned by The Hospital Management Trust.
Aspen Healthcare CEO Des Shiels said: “The Claremont is an excellent facility with a proud tradition of delivering quality healthcare to the people of Sheffield and surrounding regions. Aspen Healthcare is excited by the opportunities that this acquisition offers and intends to build upon the hospital’s past success.”
John Randle, Executive Director at The Hospital Management Trust, said: “The sale of Claremont Hospital is part of our wider strategy to divest out of hospitals to focus on grant giving and care of the elderly.”
Aspen is a subsidiary of US firm, United Surgical Partners International.
