Our history

The Priory Group can trace its history back to 1872 when Priory Roehampton was converted into a hospital. Over the following decades, the Group acquired more hospitals and diversified its services. In 1993 the Priory Group moved into specialist education services with the purchase of Jacques Hall Foundation, then an adolescent therapeutic community, in Manningtree, Essex.

Our older peoples division, Amore Care, was established in 2009. In 2011, the Priory Group gained Craegmoor, which specialises in autism and learning disability services. In 2014 we opened the first Wellbeing Centre in Fenchurch, London, and acquired the Castlecare Group, one of the UK’s leading providers of local authority funded children’s services. Castlecare, part of our Education and Children's Services division, delivers high quality services across children’s homes and specialist schools. In September 2015 we acquired Life Works, one of the leading clinics for behavioural care in the UK. Life Works joins Priory Healthcare to continue supporting people with mental illnesses. In December 2015 we acquired Progress Care, a leading provider of specialist education and care in Lancashire. Progress' service for young adults became part of Craegmoor, and its children's service joined our Education and Children’s Services division.

In mid-February 2016, the Priory Group formally became part of Acadia Healthcare, one of the leading providers of behavioural care in the world.

On 30 November 2016, Priory merged with Partnerships in Care, another UK based healthcare company owned by Acadia. This saw 66 sites, with a total of 1,890 beds, join three of Priory’s divisions: 41 hospitals joined Priory Healthcare, 23 learning disabilities services joined Craegmoor, and 2 sites became part of our Education and Children’s Services division.
