COGIR breaks into the U.S. market with Welltower, a giant in the seniors housing industry.
COGIR Real Estate is extremely pleased and enthusiastic at its entry into the U.S. market at the end of 2018 in collaboration with one of its existing partners. Welltower Inc. provided COGIR with an opportunity to invest in and take over the day-to-day operations of twelve of its properties. Welltower hopes that COGIR can reproduce its Canadian model that emphasizes resident well-being and satisfaction while maintaining exceptional operational performance. The twelve properties are located on the west coast of the United States: three are in the Greater Seattle Area, one is in the suburbs of Portland, and the other eight are in the San Francisco Bay Area. This first foray into the U.S. is the start of a new and exciting chapter!
Based in Toledo, Ohio, Welltower is a leader in the transformation of health care infrastructure. In collaboration with specialized firms that manage seniors housing and with health care providers, the company invests in innovative infrastructure to continuously improve the well-being of residents living in these communities. Welltower has a presence in major markets in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom.
