TOLEDO, Ohio — Welltower Inc. (NYSE: WELL), a Toledo-based REIT and the largest owner of seniors housing in the United States, has expanded its relationship with Oakmont Management Group.
Through the acquisition of new management contracts, the partnership is expected to roughly double the size of Welltower and Oakmont’s existing portfolio by the end of the third quarter in affluent markets across California.
