Orpea, a French care home operator, has undertaken a big rebranding exercise and now goes by the name Emeis.

French care home operator Orpea has undergone a significant rebranding effort, unveiling its new identity as Emeis. 

This move marks a decisive step in distancing itself from the scandals that plagued the company in 2022 and addressing subsequent financial challenges.

Turmoil and Transformation:

Orpea faced a period of turmoil beginning in 2022 when allegations of mistreatment surfaced in its French care homes. 

This sparked widespread concern and prompting a national dialogue on the treatment of the elderly in nursing homes. Despite vehemently denying the allegations, the company was embroiled in controversy, leading to financial difficulties.

Rejection of Allegations:

Throughout the ordeal, Orpea steadfastly rejected the allegations of widespread abuse, maintaining its commitment to providing quality care for its residents. However, the fallout from the scandal necessitated significant changes within the organization.

Embracing a New Identity:

The decision to rebrand as Emeis reflects the company’s commitment to a fresh start and a renewed focus on its core values. Derived from ancient Greek, the name “Emeis” translates to “us,” emphasizing the company’s dedication to prioritizing the needs of all stakeholders.

In addition to the rebranding effort, Orpea underwent a comprehensive financial restructuring, with investors led by France’s Caisse des dépôts et Consignations (CDC) assuming control of the company. 

This strategic move positioned France’s government as Orpea’s principal shareholder, signaling a new chapter in the company’s journey.

Forward Momentum:

With its rebranding and financial restructuring initiatives underway, Emeis is poised to move forward with renewed vigor and a commitment to excellence in elderly care. 

The company remains steadfast in its mission to provide compassionate and dignified support to residents across its care homes.
