Ensign Group acquires Kansas facility

The Ensign Group Inc. has purchased the operations and real estate of Riverbend Post Acute Rehabilitation, a 161-bed skilled nursing and 10-bed assisted living facility in Kansas City, KS.  

“Riverbend is a perfect complement to our nearby Healthcare Resorts and we are excited to offer even more skilled nursing and long-term care services to the healthcare community in Kansas City,” said Christopher Christensen, Ensign's president and CEO.

Riverbend had been run by a faith-based nonprofit organization and had 56% occupancy at acquisition. The deal was effective July 1.

Ensign's portfolio currently includes more than 200 healthcare facilities.
