Macquarie and Just Group secure €35m for healthcare facility development (GB)

Macquarie Asset Management, on behalf of Just Group, has provided approximately c. €34.9m to help finance the development of a new multi-purpose healthcare service facility to be operated by University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust.


The forward funding agreement with Prime plc, will enable the development of a sterile services facility, aseptic pharmacy, office and parking space at the Adanac Health and Innovation Campus, a short distance from Southampton General Hospital. When completed in 2025, the new facility is expected to provide essential hospital support services, research and non-residential care facilities to the NHS Trust while creating capacity for expanded clinical services at the General Hospital site.


Nenna Gilmour-Platt, Head of Investment Strategy at the retirement specialist, Just Group, said: “We are pleased to invest in the development of this healthcare facility and support the NHS Trust to deliver its services. The tailored financing project, arranged by Macquarie Asset Management, is well matched to our long-term investment objectives. We help people achieve a better later life, that’s our purpose at Just, it’s why we exist, and our investment in these NHS services helps us to fulfil our purpose.”


Hugo James, Managing Director at Macquarie Asset Management, said: “Long-term institutional capital offers an attractive funding model to support the development of community and other infrastructure. We are proud to partner with Just Group once again and provide a bespoke funding model to help meet the needs of the NHS Trust, as they continue to expand and provide critical services to the local Southampton community and beyond.”
