Blueprint Negotiates Sale of 119-Bed Skilled Nursing Facility in Idaho

REXBURG, IDAHO — Blueprint Healthcare Real Estate Advisors has brokered the sale of Rexburg Care Center, a 119-bed skilled nursing facility in Rexburg, approximately 50 miles west of the Wyoming border.

A publicly traded REIT and its operating partner sought to reduce their footprint in the state. The Ensign Group acquired the property for an undisclosed price.

Rexburg Care Center is a 5-Star CMS rated facility situated adjacent to Brigham Young University-Idaho and less than 1.5 miles from the nearest regional hospital. With only one local competitor and the facility’s participation in the state’s Upper Payment Limit (UPL) supplemental payment program, Rexburg Care Center produced positive and increasing cash flow year-over-year. However, census remained at relatively low levels compared to industry averages.

Blueprint positioned this as an upside opportunity, as only half of the facility’s operational capacity was being utilized, allowing for the potential introduction of lower acuity and/or specialty care services to boost overall census.

Pennant Healthcare, Ensign’s portfolio company based in the Pacific Northwest, will operate the property following the sale.

Christopher Hyldahl, Ben Firestone, Gideon Orion and Michael Segal facilitated the sale for Blueprint.
