HealthLease to snare $141.7M in senior properties

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

A central Indiana real estate investment trust has agreed to buy 13 senior housing and care facilities in three states for $141.7 million.

HealthLease Properties Real Estate Investment Trust, a REIT affiliated with Cicero-based developer Mainstreet Property Group, announced on Monday its plans to buy the properties from developer Smith/Packett Med-Com LLC, based in Roanoke, Va.

The 13 facilities are located in North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Virginia. They consist of four skilled nursing centers, eight combination assisted living and Alzheimer’s facilities, and one standalone center for Alzheimer’s care. Together, the properties total 978 beds.

HealthLease has entered into a purchase agreement to buy the properties, according to Paul Ezekiel Turner, chairman and CEO of both Mainstreet and HealthLease. The deal is expected to close in three weeks, he said.

“This acquisition will account for a 50-percent increase in our [approximately $300 million] asset value,” Turner told IBJ on Monday. “It’s exciting to be able to grow at this kind of pace.”

With the acquisition, HealthLease’s portfolio will increase to 28 facilities in five states and Canada.

Advantages of the purchase include further diversifying HealthLease’s product mix, Turner said. And because the facilities are all 4 years old or less—or have been renovated within the last four years—the average age of HealthLease’s properties will decrease.

Founded in 2004, Mainstreet develops high-end senior living facilities. In 2012, Mainstreet executives packaged the firm’s portfolio of properties and went public with HealthLease, a REIT listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange. The initial public offering raised $110 million.

HealthLease typically leases its senior care centers to long-term operators that are responsible for all services to residents and maintenance of the buildings, which theoretically minimizes risk to investors.

  1. Gay marriage is coming, whether or not these bigots and zealots like it or not. We must work to ensure future generations remember the likes of Greg Zoeller like they do the racists of our past...in shame.

  2. Perhaps a diagram of all the network connections of all politicians to their supporters and those who are elite/wealthy and how they have voted on bills that may have benefited their supporters. The truth may hurt, but there are no non-disclosures in government.

  3. I'm sure these lawyers were having problems coming up with any non-religious reason to ban same-sex marriage. I've asked proponents of this ban the question many times and the only answers I have received were religious reasons. Quite often the reason had to do with marriage to a pet or marriage between a group even though those have nothing at all to do with this. I'm looking forward to less discrimination in our state soon!

  4. They never let go of the "make babies" argument. It fails instantaneously because a considerable percentage of heterosexual marriages don't produce any children either. Although if someone wants to pass a law that any couple, heterosexual or homosexual, cannot be legally married (and therefore not utilize all legal, financial, and tax benefits that come with it) until they have produced a biological child, that would be fun to see as a spectator. "All this is a reflection of biology," Fisher answered. "Men and women make babies, same-sex couples do not... we have to have a mechanism to regulate that, and marriage is that mechanism." The civil contract called marriage does NOTHING to regulate babymaking, whether purposefully or accidental. These conservatives really need to understand that sex education and access to birth control do far more to regulate babymaking in this country. Moreover, last I checked, same-sex couples can make babies in a variety of ways, and none of them are by accident. Same-sex couples often foster and adopt the children produced by the many accidental pregnancies from mixed-sex couples who have failed at self-regulating their babymaking capabilities.

  5. Every parent I know with kids from 6 -12 has 98.3 on its car radio all the time!! Even when my daughter isn't in the car I sometimes forget to change stations. Not everybody wants to pay for satellite radio. This will be a huge disappointment to my 9 year old. And to me - there's so many songs on the radio that I don't want her listening to.
