BONITA SPRINGS, Fla. — Discovery Senior Living, a Bonita Springs-based operator with the fifth-largest portfolio in the country, has launched its latest operating company, Arvum Senior Living.
The new brand manages the company’s Midwest portfolio, including properties in Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Wisconsin, with plans to strategically manage communities throughout the Great Plains region.
The launch is part of Discovery’s evolving regional operating company structure.

He previously served as regional director of operations for SummerHouse Senior Living as well as executive director of The Trace.
“The addition of Arvum signifies the ongoing evolution in our multi-year strategic initiative aimed to seamlessly blend personalized local community management with the strength and stability of our differentiated home office specialty support departments,” says Richard J. Hutchinson, CEO of Discovery Senior Living.
