Vital Eating Disorder Service To Remain In York After Upgrading To New Facility

Minster Grange Care Home and Schoen Clinic York have joined forces to provide a new 15-bed inpatient facility for adults with diagnosed eating disorders and associated problems.

The ground floor of the care home on Haxby Road in Clifton is now home to the service,  which has relocated from its previous site in Haxby. The Maria Mallaband Care Group (MMCG) bought Minster Grange in January last year and has refurbished it to provide bright and modern accommodation and treatment spaces tailored to patient needs.

Minster Grange, who provide residential and nursing care as well as care for those living with dementia, will continue to operate at the site with access to both units via the main entrance.

Daniel Turner-Naylor, Regional Director said:

“Being part of and supporting the community we serve is very important to us, as is building strong relationships within health and social care. We are very pleased to be working with Schoen Clinic.”

“We know from our own experience what a difference it makes to families and individuals to have the right care and services locally. By providing a new home for Schoen Clinic York and refurbishing it to meet their needs, we are helping them to stay in the area and continue to care for those in this community who rely on their vital services.”

Schoen Clinic York comprises 15 en-suite inpatient bedrooms as well as tranquil and welcoming communal spaces including an occupational therapy kitchen, daily living room, a quiet room and a peaceful talking therapy room. Residents will also have access to the safe, secure and secluded landscaped gardens.

Andy Davey, UK Managing Director of Schoen Clinic, said:

“I am delighted that Schoen Clinic York has formed an alliance with MMCG, enabling us to deliver our first-class inpatient service for patients with eating disorders and associated problems, from our new home at Minster Grange.

“We had to move from our previous site in York but we felt it was really important to stay in the city and immediately launched an extensive search for new premises.

“We’re thrilled to be staying in the local area and caring for our community within an excellent facility. I know our colleagues will enjoy working within this lovely new environment, and our patients will receive the very best care within this safe and peaceful space.”
