Renaiss Health launches pioneering post-operative rehabilitation & recovery-care platform.

January 2023

Renaiss Health, a pioneering physical rehabilitation and recovery-care health business, launches with the announcement of its first centre in south-west London.

The business will develop and operate private short-stay residential health centres. Each one will deliver a range of tailored programmes to support those recovering from orthopaedic surgery and health events, adopting the latest thinking and technologies, within high-quality facilities.

Backed by Bridges Fund Management, a leading UK impact investor, and led by an experienced senior leadership team, Renaiss Health centres will address the current unmet demand from those seeking the very best in post-operative care and the earliest possible return to full functionality.

The first site for Renaiss Health will open in early 2025 – following an extensive refurbishment and construction programme, breathing new life into a local landmark building in the centre of Richmond, South-West London. A pipeline of further sites is being finalised.

There is mounting evidence for the need for this type of service. The current volume of elective orthopaedic procedures annually is c.200,000. Some 20% of patients report as being unsatisfied with their ongoing results and although many patients actively seek more tailored recovery-care solutions, these are currently not readily accessible in the UK healthcare system. Recently updated NICE guidelines state that “the intensive rehabilitation of people following a hip replacement was clinically significant and improved either mobility, activity of daily living capability or psychological improvement”. It has also been noted by NICE that; ‘intensive rehabilitation would reduce primary care visits, outpatient visits, hospital admissions, A&E attendances’

Chris Jessop, Chair of Renaiss Health says; “Renaiss Health launches with the goal of improving people’s independence and allowing them to regain their life following a challenging physical health experience. By bringing a totally new approach to proactive post-operative rehabilitation, this will support earlier hospital discharge, accelerated return to functionality, and reduced risks of costly post-surgery complications and readmittance. We see this as an important contribution to UK healthcare delivery.”

Jennifer Martin, CEO of Renaiss Health says: "We are excited to be introducing Renaiss Health and look forward to making a real difference to people’s lives. These will be state-of-the-art facilities, with the latest technology and equipment to provide sustainable physical rehabilitation programmes as well as the highest standards of clinical and expert care. At the same time careful consideration will be given to complementary areas including nutrition and the whole persons’ wellbeing. There will be purpose-built physiotherapy, hydrotherapy, and occupational therapy suites, with high-quality accommodation, beautifully appointed facilities and the very best of hospitality.”

She adds:

“We are particularly pleased to be opening our first centre in Richmond – a fantastic location and an area where our service can make a tangible impact on people’s longevity and quality of life. We know that Richmond’s rate of hospital admissions because of falls has increased, and (at a national level) as only c.1 in 3 people is able to return to their former level of independence after a fall or surgery, our centre and service will provide an important link in the borough’s health provision, enabling people the ability to access treatment and care to prolong their potential independence, mobility and confidence."

Work on the Richmond centre is due to commence in 2023, following the granting of planning consent. Opening is planned for early 2025. Renaiss Health, with support from Bridges Fund Management, is actively seeking other properties in the south- east of England.
