EMIS Health has signed a 15-year lease for 30,000 sq ft of Grade A office space on Orbit Developments’ Middlebrook Business Park, Horwich.
The office, at Aspinall House, has had a stylish £1.4m refit by office specialist Overbury, to fit the collaborative working practices at the heart of EMIS Health.
Formerly known as Ascribe, EMIS Health is relocating from Brancker Street, and Wingates Industrial Estate, Westhoughton, Bolton. EMIS Group – the UK leader in connected healthcare software and services – rebranded all of its healthcare software and services businesses, including Ascribe, under the single name EMIS Health in June.
EMIS Health will transfer the majority of its 360-strong workforce into Aspinall House this month (AUGUST). It also has offices in Sheffield, Southampton, Nairobi and Melbourne.
Aspinall House is the first EMIS Health office to use AIM-listed EMIS Group’s new branding and colour palette. The office has been designed to accommodate 265 desks, some of which will be ‘hot desks’ for shared use.
Duane Lawrence, managing director at EMIS Health, said: “Our move into state-of-the art premises at Aspinall House underlines the ambitions of EMIS Health and the collaborative working practices at the heart of everything we are helping clinicians to achieve.
“This is an exciting move for EMIS Health and I am delighted that colleagues here in Bolton have become the first to benefit from a working environment reflecting EMIS Group’s striking new brand.”
Some 81% of NHS Acute Trusts use an EMIS Health secondary care systems, with its software holding 30 million patient records in A&E alone.
Aspinall House was previously occupied by online white goods retailer AO.com.
EMIS Health negotiated the lease for an undisclosed amount directly with Orbit Developments, part of the Emerson Group.
