Ventas Healthcare REIT CEO Debra Cafaro

REIT.com’s latest video touches on the topic of the entire medical properties market by way of a chat with Debra Cafaro, CEO of the medical properties REIT Ventas (VTR).  Ventas is a major player in medical properties from hospitals to senior care and from national to international markets, working, as do all REITs in the sector, as a channel for Medicare payments to be transformed into dividends distributed to shareholders. Cafaro says of the healthcare market that a mere 15% of US healthcare properties are present in REIT portfolios, but if she and her competitors have anything to do with it, the acquisitions will only pick up steam as time goes on.
