“We’re already seeing great things under our capital investments campaign, with over 460 capital projects started this year,” said Brookdale President and CEO Cindy Baier. “These capital investments across our communities support our operations strategy, delight our residents, provide greater opportunities for our associates and protect the value of our portfolio for the long-term.”

Brookdale’s portfolio of about 800 communities covers 45 states, giving the company the ability to serve approximately 75,000 residents as of Sept. 30, 2019. Capital investments are a critical part of the company’s turnaround strategy to increase resident satisfaction, associate engagement and shareholder value. During 2019, Brookdale is investing approximately $30 million into development capital expenditures and about $250 million into non-development capital expenditures, which is $75 million more than was invested last year. Brookdale is committed to quality, purpose-built living solutions for seniors. Capital projects range from the construction of new buildings on existing campuses and major building system upgrades like new roofs, HVAC and water heaters to remodels and renovations where new LED lighting, carpets, countertops and paint were added.

“Supporting our reputation as a trusted source of services and care for America’s seniors is paramount,” Baier adds. “We continue our work to improve all phases of the customer experience – from researching, contacting and visiting our communities to moving in and enjoying the best-in-class experience that Brookdale has to offer.”
