Healthcare Australia acquire Randstad Care

Healthcare Australia aquires Randstad Community Care division.

Earlier this year Healthcare Australia announced their plans to acquire Randstad Care as part of an ongoing expansion strategy.

Healthcare Australia’s CEO, Jason Cartwright, said that the acquisition creates multiple opportunities for HCA to exploit internal operational synergies and hence improve profitability.

“The know-how and expertise of Randstad Care will be a valued addition to ours. It will allow us to add to our capacity, as well as enhance and extend our offering to better service our candidates and clients” Cartwright said.

The merger of these organisations creates an opportunity for the merged businesses to consolidate their market leading positions in the rural & remote, and the disability & community care sectors, and positions the business to capitalise on anticipated growth in the in-home support and direct service sector that is expected to arise from the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

Ashley Steel, Randstad Community Care’s Director said “This is an exciting opportunity for the Randstad Care team to take part in becoming the largest specialist provider in Australia.  Having spent considerable time with the HCA executive team, I can confidently say that the Care teams are joining an organisation that mirrors the passion and commitment to our sector that we all possess and will be well supported in an environment where growth is driven through the passion of our people.”

HCA advised that the integration of Randstad Care in HCA will take effect early June 2015, with Randstad Care’s Rural and Remote division to be intergated with their own to create a new Community Care division.
