Our Approach

Omega Healthcare Investors:

Investing in the Future of Senior care

Listed with the NYSE in 1992, Omega was one of the first publicly traded REITs explicitly structured to finance the sale and leaseback, construction, and renovation of Skilled Nursing Facilities.

In 2015, Omega merged with Aviv REIT, creating the largest publicly traded REIT in the U.S. dedicated to SNFs. Our portfolio consists of approximately 85% SNFs and 15% Senior Housing Facilities with gross investments totaling approximately $9.2 billion. Additionally, the combined companies have invested over $350 million since 2009 for reinvestment and new construction.

Our dual goals: To provide consistently increasing returns to our investors, while serving as the capital partner to our operators so they can concentrate on providing state-of-the-art facilities, and the highest level of care for their resident-patients, during this transformational time in the industry.

Our market insight:

Active seniors need wellness communities

With seniors remaining active into their 80s, 90s and beyond, skilled nursing facilities continue to evolve to meet the higher expectations new generations of seniors and their families want with regards to amenities, décor and care, within fairly rigid cost constraints. In addition to their traditional role of taking care of our most frail and vulnerable seniors, i.e., those with significant physical and/or memory impairment, SNFs are becoming the go-to facilities for short-term rehabilitation for post-acute care: physical therapy following hip-replacement surgery, for example.

Many SNFs were never built for such a purpose. They need to be redesigned – even reconceptualized – in order to fulfill the needs of their markets, and the needs of their resident-patients.

Smart design improves outcomes.

Buildings need to serve the people who live and work in them. This is especially true for nursing facilities.

Senior residents get lost more easily. Patients need quiet, calm, uninterrupted sleep. Access to privacy, sunlight, the outdoors, and familiar, home-like spaces are all important.

Facilities specifically designed to enhance residents’ quality of life improve patient outcomes, reduce staff stress, improve patients’ safety and reduce medical errors and infections. These benefits, in turn, improve our operators’ financial profile, the market value of our properties, and our shareholders’ ROI.
