New Ozanam Villa owners don’t plan making changes

ST VINCENT'S Private Hospital will be managing Ozanam Villa Residential Aged Care and Units from next February.

The centre, which provides aged care and accommodation services, has been run by Catholic Healthcare since it acquired the facility from the St Vincent de Paul Society in May 2007.

Ozanam Villa has been leasing the site from St

Vincent de Paul until now.

St Vincent de Paul has now sold the site at 131 Dibbs St to the Diocese of Lismore.

Staff and residents were informed of the change of ownership yesterday.

St Vincent's Private Hospital CEO Bob Walsh confirmed that "for staff and residents in the residential and the self-care units of Ozanam Villa, there is no planned changes".

About the long-term future of the site, the CEO explained that "the board at St Vincent's Private Hospital is looking at all options and opportunities, but no resident and no staff will be disadvantaged by this takeover".

"This commitment is ongoing.

"Ozanam Villa takes pride in the care that it provides to its residents and continuing employment opportunities are available to staff. We will continue down that path," he said.

Ozanam Villa has 30 seniors' living units, where residents are mostly self-sufficient and live independent lifestyles, plus 50 low care and special needs places offering 24-hour care.
