Hamburg, 8 July 2024. Cureus, an integrated property company that specialises in developing and actively managing its own care home portfolio, continues to develop successfully over the course of 2024. In addition to expanding the value chain to include the individual sale of care appartments via a stake in sales specialist PECURIA – Green Care Invest, the portfolio is also continuing to grow thanks to further completions and construction starts. In the second quarter of 2024, a total of 272 units for care and serviced living were completed. Between April and June 2024, construction began on 248 units for inpatient care and assisted living. All locations are managed together with different operator partners. Looking at the first half of 2024 as a whole, Cureus even completed 721 units for assisted living and nursing care; several sites with a total of 608 units were started.

"We will continue to pursue our growth course in project development, new construction and the further development of our value chain," says Christian Möhrke, CEO of Cureus, already looking ahead to the second half of 2024. He adds: "Our project figures continue to demonstrate stability and strength in a market that has otherwise almost come to a standstill. We also have solutions for the challenges of these times and are breaking new ground in the individual sale of selected care locations from our portfolio with the PECURIA investment, for example. This year, our fourth sustainability report for the 2023 financial year once again proves that we always focus on our basic principles, and we naturally want to continue to do so in the future."

Cureus acquires stake in PECURIA – Green Care Invest

In June 2024, Cureus acquired a stake in PECURIA, a specialist in the individual sale of sustainable care appartments. While the two companies initially had a pipeline agreement for the sale of Cureus locations for sales to private investors, Cureus now holds 25 per cent of the shares in PECURIA. The remaining shares in PECURIA are still held by companies from the management team, and the composition of the PECURIA management team remains unchanged.

PECURIA primarily markets Cureus properties, which are characterised by well-chosen locations, high structural quality, a very high level of energy efficiency, stable operating partners and the typical Cureus system approach in planning, construction and operation. PECURIA complements these advantages with product features that are unique on the market, such as security against loss of rent for purchasers of care appartments and a priority right of occupancy in over 150 partner residences throughout Germany for purchasers or their family environment.

Property acquisition and property sales are continued

Cureus continues to selectively sell sites from its portfolio to various market participants if opportunities arise in order to free up additional liquidity for the realisation of further projects.

In addition, the company continues to be active in acquiring land for new projects. The focus here is particularly on North Rhine-Westphalia; Hesse, Lower Saxony and Schleswig-Holstein also remain interesting. The company is primarily looking for centrally located plots of land in residential or mixed-use areas of 3,000 square metres or more that are well developed in terms of infrastructure.

Planning and construction in accordance with the Cureus system approach

All Cureus new-build properties are designed and built in accordance with the Cureus standard for system care homes. This specifies uniform, high quality standards and is oriented, among other things, towards the requirements of care home operators, residents and caregivers. This systematic approach enables Cureus to optimise both structural processes and the properties themselves from the inside to the outside. This relates, for example, to the dimensions and arrangement of every room in order to maximise to space and walkways. Cureus care homes are also designed and equipped for maximum utility. Interior corridors benefit from as much daylight as possible, every room has floor-to-ceiling windows and attractive views of the surrounding area, while the modern bathrooms and window fronts always follow the same standardised system approach. The architecture and facade of each residence incorporate individual touches and are constructed to the highest quality standards, integrating seamlessly into their surroundings. The Cureus system approach also prioritises sustainability, both in terms of a care home’s long-term economic viability and its impact on the environment. All Cureus care homes are, for example, constructed in accordance with the ‘Effizienhaus 40 Standard’ of the KfW and target the DGNB silver certificate. Bulk procurement of floor coverings and elevator systems, for example, achieves significant cost synergies. Long-term maintenance contracts that cover several properties also reduce costs for care home operators. The constant review and optimisation of the Cureus system care home standard guarantees the construction of care homes that truly meet demand.
