Senior Living M&A Activity Surges

seniors pic (2)According to data compiled by Levin and Associates and cited in a recent Senior Housing News article, “Healthcare mergers and acquisitions increased at a rate of 13% year over year with long-term care services mergers outpacing that average at a rate of 18%.”

In announcing the findings, Lisa Phillips, editor of Health Care M&A News, stated that long-term care was “among the dominant sectors.”  She went on to say, “We expect to see even more M&A activity in the fourth quarter.  Now that the Affordable Care Act is poised to take full effect in January, the uncertainty felt in many sectors is starting to dissipate.  Health systems that have made strategic acquisitions, such as physician medical groups, will now turn their attention to long-term care, home healthcare, and rehabilitation to fill out their care continuum requirements.”

A few recent mergers and acquisitions follow:

  • Omega Healthcare Investors announced it reached an agreement to purchase 56 nursing facilities from Memphis-based Ark Holding Company. This portfolio was known as the “Covenant Dove.”  The purchase price amount was $525 million, or approximately $95,500 per bed.  Omega plans to lease the facilities back to Ark Holding for a 50-year term.  The facilities are located in a dozen states, including South Carolina, Mississippi, Virginia, and Texas.  Source: Health Care M&A News
