HUNT VALLEY, Md. — Omega Healthcare Investors (NYSE: OHI) has acquired 16 skilled nursing facilities in Indiana for $200 million through two separate transactions. In addition, the company announced that two of its skilled nursing facilities were evacuated during Hurricane Harvey last week.

Omega owns 32 skilled nursing facilities that were impacted by Hurricane Harvey. Only two, both located along the Sabine River that separates Texas from Louisiana, were closed. The names and specific locations of those facilities were not disclosed, and no further information on the extent of the damage was released.

For the acquisitions, Omega acquired 15 facilities totaling 2,074 beds from two unrelated third parties and leased them to CommuniCare Health Services. Simultaneously, Omega received a $9.4 million loan to purchase the leasehold interest in a 135-bed skilled nursing facility, also leasing the property to CommuniCare.

CommuniCare will replace Kindred Healthcare as the operator of all 16 facilities. The company plans to keep the full staff in place. The acquired properties include: 

  • Allison Pointe Healthcare Center, Indianapolis 
    Bridgewater Healthcare Center, Carmel
    Great Lakes Healthcare Center (formerly Kindred Dyer Healthcare), Dyer
    Eagle Creek Healthcare Center, Indianapolis
    Greenfield Healthcare Center, Greenfield

The properties were added to the operator’s master lease with Omega, which includes an initial cash yield of 9.5 percent with 2.5 percent annual escalators.
