A place where I am valued, 
and encouraged to work
and develop to my full potential.”
Parkside employee

Our heritage

Aspen Healthcare was established in March 1998 following a management buyout of Paracelsus UK from Paracelsus Kliniken Deutschland GmbH. At the time of the buyout, Paracelsus UK (an independent healthcare provider founded in 1987) consisted of two acute care community hospitals: Parkside Hospital, Wimbledon and Holly House Hospital, Buckhurst Hill.

United Surgical Partners International (USPI), backed by Welsh Carson Anderson and Stowe (WCAS), acquired Aspen in April 2000. Aspen Healthcare then purchased Highgate Hospital in March 2003 and opened Cancer Centre London in August 2003. In January 2011, Aspen Healthcare entered into a joint venture arrangement at The Edinburgh Clinic, and in 2012 acquired the Claremont Hospital in Sheffield, the Midland Eye Institute, Solihull and the Chelmsford Medical Centre, Essex.

In early 2012, a restructuring of the USPI group resulted in Aspen Healthcare being wholly owned by WCAS.  In June 2015, Aspen became a wholly owned subsidiary of Tenet Healthcare, a leading provider of diversified healthcare services in the United States.
