Eagle Arc Partners, formerly known as BM Eagle Holdings, has acquired 20 skilled nursing facilities — the majority of which are located in Florida, along with properties in Georgia and Mississippi.
The price of the sale was not disclosed; two operators who were also not disclosed partnered with Eagle Arc on the sale.
The process itself took several months, but the portfolio itself has held up well overall during COVID, Elliott Mandelbaum, managing partner at Eagle Arc Partners, told Skilled Nursing News.
Capital Funding Group served as the lender on the deal.
“We felt that these assets … were good long-term assets that we want to hold — very strong markets with very good demographics,” Mandelbaum said. “There’s going to be life after COVID. We’re going to get through it.”
With the deal, Eagle Arc expanded its influence in the skilled nursing world.
The New York City-based real estate investment firm made headlines in 2017 as the buyer in Kindred Healthcare’s $700 million deal to exit the nursing home space entirely. Eagle Arc last year also picked up 28 skilled nursing facilities in Texas and Louisiana, operated by Senior Care Centers, for $282.5 million.

Ignite’s Kansas City Expansion
Ignite Medical Resorts acquired two SNFs in the Kansas City area, growing to five facilities in the region as a result, the operator announced on November 2.
The facilities, Carondelet Place in Kansas City, Mo., and St. Mary’s Village in Blue Springs, Mo., are both now under the Ignite Medical Resorts brand, but will “retain their faith-based missions,” according to a release.

Capital improvements and renovations are planned for the coming months, including an enhanced therapy gym.
“We look forward to bringing our enhanced environment of engaged employee culture, a hospitality-centered focus and superior rehabilitative nursing and therapy care to Carondelet and St. Mary’s,” Tim Fields, the CEO and co-founder of Ignite, said in a statement.
