PARKER, Colo. — CareTrust REIT Inc. (NASDAQ: CTRE) has acquired Avantara Crown Point, a 154-bed skilled nursing facility in Parker, approximately 25 miles southeast of Denver.

The property will be renamed The Suites – Parker and Salt Lake City-based Eduro Healthcare will take over operations. The company operates five other CareTrust properties, including one in nearby Lakewood.

The community was built in 2012 and is located across the street from Parker Adventist Hospital. It is the only skilled nursing facility in Parker certified for both Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement, according to CareTrust.

The acquisition was funded using cash on hand.
