Sun West Choice Healthcare and Rehabilitation is a 140-bed skilled nursing facility with an 87 percent occupancy rate in Sun City West. The acquisition became effective June 1, 2018.
Bandera Healthcare, Inc., Ensign’s Arizona-based subsidiary, was enthusiastic about the addition of Sun West Choice.
“We are ecstatic to welcome to the Bandera family an amazing team of caregivers and look forward to building on their reputation in the local healthcare community in order to provide the highest standard of care,” said said Bandera Healthcare President Jim Guschl.
Ensign Group now has 184 skilled nursing operations across 15 states. Their portfolio includes:
22 Living Operations
51 Assisted & Independent Living Operations
22 Hospice Agencies
20 Home Health Agencies
4 Home Care Businesses
Ensign’s President and Chief Executive Officer Christopher Christensen commented,
Sun West Choice is a perfect example of an off-market acquisition resulting from relationships built by our local operators over many years. While we continue to evaluate many potential acquisition opportunities with extreme care and thought, this operation stood out as one that shows significant long-term potential while adding strength to our growing footprint in Arizona.
Ensign lists more than 20 affiliates across Arizona.
