A care homes operator has announced two key appointments.
Eldercare (Halifax) Ltd , which runs homes in Huddersfield and Brighouse, has appointed Paul Torrance as chief operations officer and will be responsible for managing a team of senior managers across the organisation and its affiliate Queensland Care Ltd.
Mr Torrance has more than 25 years’ care management experience in a number of strategic regional management roles with national operators, most recently with Voyage Care.
In addition, Eldercare has appointed Sean O’Hanrahan, who will head STEP – Supportive Therapies for Enabling People – the group’s new mental health project with facilities in Rochdale and Bradford.
Mr O’Hanrahan holds qualifications in nursing and leadership and has significant project management experience in secure services. He began his career at Rampton Hospital and has held a number of hospital director and registered manager positions, most recently at a Community Forensic Service, where he oversaw five specialist rehabilitation centres in North East Lincolnshire.
Eldercare managing director Brian Vincent said Mr Mr Torrance would oversee a review of operations. The company had already started a review of administration and training under senior human resources manager Sue Butterworth.
