Partnerships in Care

PiC appoints Joy Chamberlain as Group Chief Executive

Partnerships in Care (PiC), the UK's largest and leading independent provider of secure hospitals, announces the appointment of Joy Chamberlain as its new Group Chief Executive.

Joy has been with PiC since 1998 when she joined from PriceWaterhouseCoopers. She was appointed to the Board in 2005, initially as Chief Financial Officer before taking on the role of Chief Operating Officer in July 2008. Joy was appointed as Acting Chief Executive in September 2011.

During her time at PiC, Joy has been responsible for the strategic development of the hospitals and its operational performance. In this time the company has grown from 600 beds to over 1,200, with staff numbers growing to more than 3,500.

On Joy's appointment she said:

"Since I joined Partnerships in Care in 1998 I have been extremely proud to work for the organisation. The staff at PiC are second to none and the Company has grown from strength to strength. The sector has changed significantly over the last five to ten years - competition, regulation and external scrutiny have all increased. In addition both patients and commissioners are looking for more evidence to support decisions and placements.

"However, I believe that providers who can evidence high quality services, clinical excellence and positive outcomes at an affordable price will continue to have a place in the market. I am confident that, with the experience and expertise across PiC, we will be one of those providers and I look forward to ensuring this happens."

Kevin Beeston, Non-Executive Chairman, said:

"I am very pleased to be able to announce the appointment of Joy Chamberlain as Group Chief Executive following a comprehensive search process. She has the experience, knowledge and leadership capabilities to lead PiC during a period of market evolution as well as enjoying the support of PiC’s customers, stakeholders, management and employees. I and the rest of the Board look forward to working with her in driving forward PiC's continuing leadership of the sector."
