Dr Chai Patel

Chair

Chai, a qualified doctor and entrepreneur, co-founded Elysian in 2007. He trained in investment management at banks Merrill Lynch and Lehman Brothers and has led high-profile healthcare deals. They include Care First, Westminster Healthcare (backed by Goldman Sachs and Welsh Carson) and Care Management Group (through real estate investor Court Cavendish). Priory Group, a mental health and education services provider he bought in 2002 with buyout firm Doughty Hanson, is perhaps his best-known acquisition. He served as chief executive of Priory Group from 2002 to 2007, overseeing improved services and a significant enhancement in reputation and value. In 2011, Chai launched care home group HC-One from the remaining assets of the bankrupt Southern Cross. He served as chair of HCOne until 2019 and spent four years as its chief executive. Under his leadership, the company became the UK’s largest care home provider. Chai is also chair of healthcare real estate investors Elevation Advisors and Court Cavendish.
