Orwell Healthcare in the Headlines…

Since the official re-launch of Orwell Healthcare we have seen our name in print.

Firstly, the official opening hit the front page of the Irish Times on Friday 13th of May 2016



Peter was interviewed for the Irish Times with a piece in the Irish Times on Friday 20th May 2016.

‘Monaghan man Peter Jones has invested about €15 million developing Orwell Healthcare, a 170-bed nursing home and convalescence care centre in Dublin, the final phase of which officially opened last week.

The project, which has created 180 jobs, was almost abandoned during the recession when the banks declined to put up the funding to finish it.

Jones, a former clerical student who bought the nursing home three decades ago when he left Maynooth seminary, sold his home on Elgin Road in Ballsbridge three years ago to bridge the gap. He says he has no regrets.’
