Diversified Healthcare Trust (Nasdaq: DHC) has completed the management transitions for 107 communities within its Senior Housing Operating Portfolio, or SHOP. Management of the 107 communities was transitioned to 10 regionally focused operators.
“We completed the management transitions in our SHOP portfolio to 10 new operators well ahead of the year-end timeline that we announced in April,” stated Jennifer Francis, President and Chief Executive Officer of DHC. “This diversified group of new operators was carefully selected to drive performance and maximize value on a community-by-community basis. We also expect that the results for the 120 communities that Five Star continues to manage for DHC will improve as Five Star continues to refocus its business and align its structure to optimize operations.”
These management transitions were completed as part of the agreement between DHC and Five Star Senior Living Inc. (Nasdaq: FVE), or Five Star, to transition 108 communities from Five Star to other third-party operators as previously announced. DHC plans to close and is assessing opportunities to redevelop the one remaining community located in Delaware.
