A new partnership for quality care

We are pleased to announce White Oak is now part of the Hall & Prior Health & Aged Care Group.  Hall & Prior is a family-owned residential aged care provider with a passion for quality care.

Started in 1992 by Michael Hall and Graeme Prior, Hall & Prior has grown from a single nursing home to a leading national aged care provider. They operate 24 aged care homes across Western Australia and New South Wales, as well as a home care service in WA’s Great Southern region.

White Oak General Manager Treasa Lonergan said the move would benefit clients and staff in the years to come.

“Joining the Hall & Prior group is a great opportunity to combine our respective decades of knowledge and experience, and use it to better support people from all over Perth,” she said.

The partnership will mean additional clinical support from Hall & Prior’s experienced clinical support team, which includes an on-staff geriatrician, nurse practitioners, speech pathologists, dieticians and registered nurses.

Access to respite and interim care in an emergency will also be streamlined through the move.

Hall & Prior’s Chief Executive Officer Graeme Prior said he looked forward to working with Ms Lonergan in the future.

“Our vision for White Oak is simple. In this time of significant change in the aged and community sector we need to leverage the strengths of both White Oak and Hall & Prior to enable White Oak to be an economically sustainable, long-term service provider in the communities in which it operates, " Mr Prior said.
