Not-For-Profit Exits Two Non-Core New Mexico Assets

Blueprint’s next skilled nursing transaction came from out West, in New Mexico, and featured two facilities formerly owned by the largest not-for-profit senior care provider in the country, Sioux Falls, South Dakota-based Evangelical Lutheran Good Samaritan Society, which merged with another Sioux Falls-based healthcare company, Sanford Health, in June 2018 to create a $6 billion entity.

Considered to be non-core by the nonprofit, the rural facilities totaled 150 skilled nursing beds and 25 independent/assisted living units but were located on opposite sides of the state in Aztec and Lovington. They were well maintained, with one facility recently undergoing a major renovation. Amy Sitzman and Hayden Behnke worked together to find the buyer, a Southern California-based private investor looking to expand in New Mexico, and closed the transaction.
