Listen to Rethink Podcast #1: Sabra Health Care REIT CEO Rick Matros

Skilled Nursing News is excited to unveil our new podcast series, Rethink.

Rick Matros has made a name for himself as one of the most outspoken leaders in the long-term health care space, offering blunt assessments of certain operators’ business models and the future of the skilled nursing industry at large.

The past two years have been eventful for the chairman and CEO of Sabra Health Care REIT, the Irvine, Calif.-based real estate investment trust with nearly 500 properties around the country — and almost 700 total investments. In that time, Matros has overseen Sabra’s acquisition of fellow REIT Care Capital Properties, restructured its leases with provider Signature HealthCARE, orchestrated a near complete divestiture of properties operated by Genesis Healthcare, and most recently initiated a difficult sale of buildings previously run by Senior Care Centers, which declared bankruptcy in late December.

Listen to our interview with Matros and hear:

  • How Sabra plans to grow in the years ahead after adding CCP’s assets and shedding Genesis’s properties
  • Matros’s take on the Welltower-ProMedica deal, as well as the potential for similar collaborations between post-acute operators and hospital providers
  • What role REITs will play in skilled nursing investment in the years to come
