Kardinal Healthcare was established in June 2007 by husband and wife team Helen and Carl Hancorn. The idea was formed when Helen was working as a registered manager for a national healthcare company and was based in London.
In February 2007 their son Sam aged 11 was involved in a skiing accident where he fractured his Skull whilst on holiday in Austria. The hospital that saved Sam’s life was called Kardinal Schwarzenburg. Sam made a full recovery from the accident but required 3 months off school. It was then decided by Helen and Carl for Helen to give up commuting into London to stay at home to look after Sam whilst setting up their new Company from home.
In 2009 Kardinal moved to offices in Broadwater where they operate from now.
