Heritage Home Healthcare Sold to Affiliate of the Evangelical Lutheran Good Samaritan Society

Albuquerque, New Mexico-based Heritage Healthcare Services Inc. has been acquired by an affiliate of the Evangelical Lutheran Good Samaritan Society for an undisclosed price.

Heritage offers home care services at five locations in New Mexico and one in Arizona. Heritage also provides physical therapy, skilled nursing, hospice care and personal care.

The locations run by Heritage, which was founded in 1993 by husband-and-wife team Len and Liz Trainor, are set to keep the same name. No layoffs are anticipated, Len Trainor said.

Heritage currently has 2,000 employees, approximately 75% of whom are full-time.

Trainor said Heritage’s home health care, hospice and personal services are expected to complement Good Samaritan’s holdings, which include Manzano del Sol Village in Albuquerque.

The South Dakota-based Good Samaritan Society has 240 locations in 24 states, including eight in New Mexico. It operates skilled nursing facilities and assisted-living centers, as well as provides in-home and skilled nursing care.

Blueprint Announces Successful Sale of 107-Bed Skilled Nursing Facility for $3.21 Million

Blueprint announced the successful sale of Kindred Hallmark, a skilled nursing facility with 107 beds in New Bedford, Massachusetts, for $3.21 million or $30,000 per bed.

Blueprint conducted an exclusive process as part of a larger mandate on behalf of a publicly-traded REIT which sought to strategically divest of multiple non-core assets.

Though Kindred Hallmark’s trailing 12-month total revenues were about $6.8 Million, EBITDAR during the same period was marginal. Consequently, Blueprint said it positioned the offering as a value play on a price-per-bed basis.

Using its extensive network of qualified investors and regional operators, Blueprint produced multiple competitive offers to acquire the facility.

The undisclosed purchaser ultimately chosen was a privately held, regional owner/operator looking to broaden its regional footprint in the Northeast United States.

Tim Cobb and Steve Thomes, along with Ben Firestone, worked to execute the transaction.
