A new report from two industry leaders offers a quantitative look at the nation's 100 largest not-for-profit, multi-site senior living organizations. The American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging and Ziegler, an financial services company, developed the AAHSA Ziegler 100 to provide an annual update for investors, lenders and policymakers about the business role not-for-profits play in senior living.

In addition to ranking the organizations by size, the report describes where each system is headquartered, when it was founded and how many units are dedicated to each level of care. Other characteristics profiled include geographic spread, financial rating and accreditation status.

The organizations listed in the AZ 100 range from 21,480 units to 571 units, with the 10 largest systems accounting for nearly 40% of the total units represented. In the last 10 years, the number of independent living units provided by the 10 largest systems has more than doubled.
