Our Company

Delivering on Our Promise – Excellence. Sustained.®

Excellence is Ventas’s hallmark. It comes from the Ventas Advantage of superior properties, platforms and people.

As a leading real estate investment trust (REIT) with a highly diversified portfolio of approximately 1,200 seniors housing, healthcare and research properties in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom, Ventas is excited to operate at the intersection of two powerful and dynamic industries – healthcare and real estate. We benefit from the highly fragmented $1 trillion healthcare real estate market. Plus, longevity, demographic trends and healthcare policy are driving demand for the care provided at our properties.

Since January 1, 2000, Ventas has delivered an industry-leading compound annual total return to shareholders of 23 percent, significantly outperforming both the S&P 500 and the MSCI US REIT indices. At the same time, we have maintained a strong balance sheet.
