Sioux Falls, South Dakota-based The Evangelical Lutheran Good Samaritan Society exited two of its senior care facilities in the Phoenix area with the help of Amy Sitzman of Blueprint Healthcare Real Estate Advisors. If this deal looks familiar, it’s because The Ensign Group announced early in the May that it was the buyer of the two campuses.
Built in various stages from the mid-1970s to the early 2000s, the properties included a Peoria campus with 150 skilled nursing beds and 70 independent living units, and a Mesa campus with 58 SN beds, 88 IL units and 18 assisted living beds. Good Samaritan had recently invested several million dollars in renovations and maintained four- or five-star ratings at both properties. Ensign will keep that ball rolling by bringing in its affiliate Bandera Healthcare to operate them going forward.
