Rethink Podcast #12: LTC Properties, Inc. President and CEO Wendy Simpson

The 12th episode of our podcast, Rethink, is now available!

Publicly traded health care REITs have been blamed for some of the skilled nursing industry’s woes in recent years — after all, how can a provider keep up with annual escalators as it navigates an uncertain reimbursement landscape and ever-rising staffing costs?

But Wendy Simpson, president and CEO of LTC Properties, Inc., says REITs aren’t the ones to blame — and that operators should instead make sure that any lease arrangement leaves enough money to put back into their operations before signing on the dotted line.

Listen to this episode of Rethink to learn:
– Why Simpson remains frustrated with the ongoing bankruptcy of tenant Senior Care Centers
– How a dearth of younger, newer operating teams could cause trouble for the industry down the road
– Why REITs still make sense for operators looking to unlock the equity in their assets
– …and more!
