BMI Healthcare: David Mobbs

Hospital TopCo, the owner and major landlord of UK private hospital provider BMI Healthcare, has appointed David Mobbs (pictured) as non-executive chairman.

Mobbs’ appointment follows the financial restructure of BMI Healthcare, which has also received a capital injection of approximately £60 million, an annual rent reduction of £65 million, and the launch of a £250 million capital expenditure programme over the group’s hospital estate, as reported by HealthInvestor UK.

Mobbs has 30 years’ experience of private healthcare, including 13 years as chief executive of Nuffield Health, a post he held until 2015. He is an experienced non-executive chairman, investor and healthcare strategy advisor, both in the UK and internationally.

BMI Healthcare chief executive Dr Karen Prins said: “BMI is starting 2019 on a strong footing, with new investors and now a new board. David will bring leadership and challenge to the board of directors to ensure we achieve our long-term objectives for excellence in clinical quality, patient safety and efficiency across the group.”

Mobbs added: “This is a good time to be joining BMI. I’m looking forward to being part of what I know is a strong leadership team, and to sharing my own insight of healthcare to further develop the business for the benefit of patients and people in the UK.”
