Johann van Zyl


Johann has been the CEO of Complex Care provider Cornerstone Healthcare since September 2018, when he was instrumental in the Management Buy-In of the group backed by an equity partner. After two years, Cornerstone had already been acknowledged as a leader in complex care provision by winning the HealthInvestors Award for Complex Care Provider of the Year consecutively in 2020 and 2021.

Johann initiated the equity backed Management Buy-In of two Hampshire based nursing homes to form the 154-bed Cornerstone Healthcare. Since then, by implementing a buy and build strategy, Cornerstone has acquired another home in Surrey increasing bed numbers to 204. Currently Cornerstone is involved in the development of two more nursing homes one of which is on course for a certification of ‘Excellent’ from the World’s leading sustainability assessment body – the Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) and will have on completion 354 beds.

In their annual report for 2021, international corporate finance company, Alantra Capital, named Cornerstone as the sixth fastest growing specialist care provider in the UK.
