The Ensign Group (ENSG) said late Tuesday that it acquired the real estate and operations of Peoria Post Acute and Rehabilitation, a 128-bed skilled nursing facility located in Peoria, Arizona.
The acquisition was effective April 1. The facility also includes an adjacent 50-bed long-term acute care hospital that is currently operated by a third party under a lease arrangement.
This acquisition brings Ensign’s portfolio to 182 skilled nursing operations, 21 of which also include assisted living operations, 51 assisted and independent living operations, 22 hospice agencies, 20 home health agencies and four home care businesses across fifteen states. Ensign owns the real estate at 66 of its 233 healthcare operations.
