The Carlyle Group has acquired Alloheim, a German care home operator that had been owned by Star Capital. Carlyle is using its €5.3 billion ($7.06 billion) Europe Partners III fund to finance to deal. Alloheim operates 49 nursing homes that house more than 6,000 beds. Services include nursing care, assisted living, ambulatory care and specialized nursing. Star Capital partnered with management to acquire the company in March 2008. It had 13 facilities and 1,500 beds at the time.
