Bupa Willowbank care home officially opens

Willowbank, Bupa’s new Village and Care Home, located in Napier, was packed with enthusiastic residents ready to celebrate the official opening of their home.

The community centre was full as residents, families and team members gathered to hear speeches from Pedro Sanchez, Managing Director of Bupa NZ, Napier Deputy Mayor Annette Brosnan, Richard Stephenson, Director of Property for Bupa NZ and resident, Graham Holt.

Tracey Morrison, General Manager of Bupa Willowbank, said the ceremony was an opportunity to acknowledge everyone who had worked on the development and the people and residents that have turned Willowbank into a community.

“Willowbank’s official opening is the conclusion of many years of work. We first broke ground in 2020 and welcomed our first village residents in 2021. We are now a community that can care for 56 residents across rest home, hospital and dementia care and support independent living in our village with its 16 serviced apartments and 99 villas.

“Importantly, Willowbank has developed into an active and close-knit community. It’s great that we can now extend that sense of belonging to our new residents and provide more care options for the Napier community,” says Tracey.
