Kiama Council Announces Blue Haven Buyer

Kiama Council


Kiama Council is pleased to announce that the preferred tenderer for Blue Haven Bonaira is Hall & Prior Aged Care.

In this week’s Extraordinary Meeting, the elected Council voted to proceed with Hall & Prior’s offer and begin drawing up a sales contract.

Hall & Prior Health and Aged Care Group is an established and leading provider of residential aged care, retirement living and home care services in New South Wales and Western Australia.

Kiama Mayor Neil Reilly welcomed Hall & Prior to Kiama: “I’m glad to see Blue Haven Bonaira be acquired by a high-quality aged care provider who already operates a range of facilities in both NSW and Western Australia. I welcome Hall & Prior to Kiama and the Illawarra region and look forward to a fruitful working relationship with them as we transition the business into their capable hands.”

Hall & Prior Chief Executive Officer, Graeme Prior said: “Our dedicated commitment to providing quality aged care and accommodation is our priority, and we are excited to bring our experience to the residents of Blue Haven Bonaira and associated services. We are looking forward to being part of the Illawarra region and having a long-term relationship with Kiama Council and the local community.”

Hall & Prior currently operates 13 residential aged care homes across Sydney and regional New South Wales, and 23 aged care homes in Western Australia.

Both Kiama Council and Hall & Prior share a focus on continuity of care and security of tenure for all residents and care recipients. This commitment includes services in aged care, independent living and home care services.

Once the contract has been finalised, it will go back to Council for endorsement. This is currently expected to happen in July.

Following final agreement and completion of pre-settlement conditions, both parties anticipate settlement in September 2024.

Council and Blue Haven will continue to keep our residents and staff informed about the sale and transition process with regular updates.
