Eduro Grows in Montana with Two-Building Acquisition

HELENA, Montana, September 3rd, 2020–Eduro Healthcare announced yesterday that they acquired two skilled nursing facilities in Montana. Cooney Healthcare and Rehabilitation is an 80-bed location situated in Helena on the St. Peter’s Health Regional Medical Center campus. Elkhorn Healthcare and Rehabilitation is a 70-bed facility located in Clancy, just 20 minutes from Helena. These two locations add to Eduro’s presence in the state, which was established when they acquired Butte facility, Copper Ridge Nursing and Rehab back in 2018.

 

The news follows some good publicity Eduro already received in the state when Copper Ridge administrator Brenna Anderson was voted a “local hero” for her quick preventative measures taken at the start of the coronavirus outbreak. Anderson was one of 12 people nominated for the recognition for “braving the coronavirus every day to keep the community as strong and healthy as possible.” (Full article)

 

The deal marks Eduro’s third and fourth additions to their portfolio this year. Michael Bewsey, an experienced healthcare executive and managing partner at Eduro, commented on the promising opportunities following the deal.

“We are excited because these facilities are already clinically and operationally sound, and with the added support that Eduro can provide from behind the scenes, we believe they will just keep improving.”

CareTrust REIT (NASDAQ:CTRE) provided the financial backing for the deal, and saw a 4.34% bump in share prices after announcing the two new locations yesterday. The transaction was the first to be started and closed during the pandemic, and COO Dave Sedgwick commented on the smooth transition facilitated by Eduro; “Eduro made it easy for the seller, who cared about the facilities and their legacy, to get comfortable with the sale.” (Full article)

Eduro Adds Skilled Nursing Facility in Aurora, CO

AURORA, Colorado, July 1, 2020 — Eduro Healthcare acquired another skilled nursing facility in CO. The Springs at St. Andrew’s Village is a 58-bed facility, and joins Eduro’s two other CO facilities, located in Lakewood and Parker.

Managing Partner Michael Bewsey commented, “This building was an exciting acquisition for us as we are combining an excellent physical plant with outstanding clinical care in an already strong Eduro market. This building and team will seamlessly integrate into our Colorado platform and be a top performer.” While Eduro is now managing the skilled nursing portion of St. Andrew’s village, management of the assisted and independent living units will remain the same.

Following a few years of rapid growth, Eduro hadn’t added any new locations within the past year. COVID-19 has understandably affected many aspects of the industry, but Eduro’s recent acquisition of The Springs demonstrates their strong position that enables continued growth. This puts them back on the radar as one of the companies that has adapted well to the uncertainty of the coronavirus pandemic.

Limiting Facility Access and Visitors Amidst COVID-19

[Salt Lake City, Utah] — Eduro Healthcare is following the developments of the novel coronavirus and the illness it causes, COVID-19. The safety and welfare of our residents and your loved one is our top priority. We are making proactive measures to prevent and, if necessary, defend against the virus through strong monitoring, education, awareness, prevention, and management.

 

Our Facility is following the recommendations of the CDC on prevention steps, including following strict handwashing procedures, and in many circumstances, wearing gowns and gloves when interacting with residents who are sick. In addition, our facility is in close contact with the local and state health department and are following their guidance.

 

Currently, the CDC, Local and state health departments are recommending extra precautions to prevent the spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) to older members of our communities and those with chronic medical conditions who are at highest risk of hospitalization and death from infection due to COVID-19. As a result, we are limiting access to our building and all visitation until further notice. Please note that this limitation is not a ban on all visitation but means that visitors and vendors will not be allowed to enter our facility, except in specific circumstances, such as end-of-life circumstances or when it is essential for a resident’s care or emotional well-being.

We take our role in protecting the health of our residents very seriously. As such, we will be screening anyone whose access is considered essential, including employees, and restricting entry into the facility based on the most up-to-date CDC and CMS guidelines. We kindly ask that you respect our efforts to protect your loved one through these limitations.

We understand that connecting with family members is incredibly important, and there are a variety of other ways you might consider connecting with them. These may include telephone, email, text, or through Skype or Facebook. We are happy to help accommodate these types of visits. Please contact us for assistance if needed.

 

We ask that you provide us the most current emergency contact information so that we may keep you informed of any new developments.

 

We appreciate your cooperation and understanding during this challenging time.

Eduro in Top 100 Fastest Growing Companies in Salt Lake City

[Salt Lake City, Utah] — Eduro Healthcare was recently named one of Growjo’s “100 Fastest Growing Companies in Salt Lake City.”  Eduro was one of the few companies to make the list in the Hospital/Healthcare categories, as Utah has seen most of their rapid growth through the booming tech industry.  In fact, some are calling Salt Lake and the surrounding areas “Silicon Slopes,” a reference to Silicon Valley in California, where some of the largest companies in the world are headquartered, including Apple, Google, and Facebook. 

Eduro currently operates 14 skilled nursing facilities across 9 states, as well as a regional home health & hospice company in Utah.  Although founded in 2008, 10 of their 14 facilities were added to Eduro’s portfolio since 2018, a huge jump for a company this size.  Managing partner Brian Ramos commented, “It’s been a banner year for Eduro as far as growth is concerned.  We are so proud of the team we have and it’s only because of them that we’ve been able to achieve this prudent and exciting growth.  We look forward to building upon our great partnerships in all of our communities and having another great year.”  Salt Lake is already one of the cities with the fastest growing cities per capita in the United States, so making the Top 100 list at #75 is no small matter.

Many providers in the skilled nursing industry haven’t been as fortunate.  Expansion for other companies has plateaued—and even receded—with the anticipated changes that were to come with PDPM (Patient-Driven Payment Model), which was implemented just last week.  The massive shift in Medicare reimbursements have left many uncertain with where the skilled nursing industry would move in the future.  Managing partner Michael Bewsey has a positive outlook on the new way that providers will be compensated for their services.  “We’ve invested heavily in preparing our team for success with PDPM,” Bewsey explained.  “Hundreds of hours have been spent on-site with our facilities to train our employees so they can hit the ground running when PDPM rolls out.  Nobody is certain with where these changes will take us down the road, but we feel ready now and are prepared to pivot if additional adjustments are needed.”

Eduro has received overwhelmingly positive feedback from the facilities they’ve acquired.  Comments about finally paying local vendors, better employee training, and improved resident care are common when speaking with employees about their transition to Eduro.  Employees and residents alike seem to love when Eduro steps in, as evidenced by this 3-min video showing what happened when they took over a building in Stockton, California back in June. 

 

Eduro’s positive outlook on the future of skilled nursing indicates that they don’t plan on slowing their growth anytime soon, and it will be interesting to see where they stand by this time next year.
