David Mobbs appointed as non executive Chairman of BMI Healthcare

The appointment follows on from a successful financial restructure of BMI Healthcare, which has seen a £60m cash investment, a £65m annual rent reduction and a £250m capital expenditure programme over the group’s 58-site strong hospital estate.

Mr Mobbs joins BMI’s new owner and major landlord Hospital TopCo with a 30-year experience of private healthcare including 13 years as the Chief Executive Officer of Nuffield Heath, a post he held until 2015. He is also an experienced and non-executive chairman, investor and healthcare strategy advisor – both nationally and internationally.

In 2012, he was recognised by his peer for his dynamic leadership with an Outstanding Personal Contribution to Healthcare award from Health Investor.

Dr Karen Prins, Chief Executive of BMI Healthcare, 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.” Mr Mobbs said: “This is a good time to be joining BMI. I am 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.”
