ESI Arranges $30M Sale of Maison de Lafayette Skilled Nursing in Louisiana

LAFAYETTE, La. — Evans Senior Investments (ESI) has arranged the sale of Maison de Lafayette, a 189-bed skilled nursing community in Lafayette.

At a sales price of $30 million, or $159,000 price per bed, the transaction represents the highest price per bed ever sold in Louisiana for a skilled nursing community, according to ESI.

Built in 1992 and expanded in 2009 and 2012, the community exhibited a modern physical plant with a unit configuration of 125 private rooms. The community had a history of stabilized performance with census averaging 93 to 95 percent, though it fell to 82 percent as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

ESI represented the seller, an independent owner-operator in their exit from the long-term care industry. The buyer was a regional operator with existing properties in Louisiana.
