Caremark International Launches In Malta

Early October 2012 saw the launch of Caremark International’s first home care business in Malta.

A prestigious reception saw many industry professionals gather to hear the opening address given by the Hon. Joe Cassar, Minister for Health, the Elderly and Community Care, special guest invited for the launch of the new business.

This new venture, driven by three parties, Caremark International Ltd., Forestals and the KDM Group, was received with great interest and eagerness by all who attended. For Caremark, this is the second such international launch, having already taken the business to Southern Ireland, where there are currently seven offices operating.

Dr. Joe Cassar warmly welcomed this new venture and saw it as a great step towards private companies and NGOs contributing to the health and social care sector.

During his opening address, Dr. Cassar commented “I have consistently sought to fetch and support initiatives originating from the private sector which sought to complement the policies, plans and projects of the public healthcare system. I believe there is a place for all in our health system. The demand for this kind of service, that is, care service provision in the community, is one which is increasingly on the rise.”

Caremark’s CEO Kevin Lewis, in his welcoming address, said how pleased he was to be able to work in partnership with the Maltese organisations, bringing this exciting venture to Malta and was looking forward to seeing Caremark’s quality care service operating within their local community.

This new collaboration between Caremark International and Maltese business professionals is the first of its kind to come to the country. Caremark (Malta) is now preparing to open its first office in San Gwann, which will be offering high quality care provision, support and companionship to people of all ages and needs, within their own homes and local communities.

The Maltese people will benefit from a robust, professionally developed home care service, delivered by a company which has a reputation for excellence and years of experience in the UK home care industry. Caremark (Malta) will be looking to create around 100 new jobs across the Maltese archipelago, offering great opportunities to develop a career in this rewarding sector.
