Ziegler, the nation’s top-ranked underwriter of not-for-profit senior living tax-exempt municipal bond financings, and LeadingAge, the nation’s largest association of not-for-profit aging service providers, released the 14th annual LeadingAge Ziegler 150 (LZ 150) today. This publication ranks and analyzes the nation’s largest 150 not-for-profit senior living providers of multi-site systems, single-site campuses and government-subsidized multi-site housing.

“The LeadingAge Ziegler 150 demonstrates the strength of the nonprofit sector in aging services and we are proud to partner with Ziegler to showcase innovation in our field,” said Katie Smith Sloan, LeadingAge president and CEO.

This year’s largest 150 not-for-profit senior living organizations comprise more than 265,000 market-rate units and over 1,300 market-rate communities, not to mention a number of affordable housing properties along with home and community-based service offerings. These largest organizations have grown at a rate of approximately 3% over the past 10+ years and in recent years, have stimulated much of that growth through affiliations and campus expansions.

The largest 150 providers span communities in 47 states and range in size from more than 19,000 market-rate units (National Senior Campuses, MD) to roughly 630 units (Bethany St. Joseph Corporation, WI).

“We are excited to once again partner with LeadingAge on this important research. This year’s report reveals changing trends and growth patterns amongst not-for-profit senior living providers and we encourage others to take advantage of the wealth of information that the study provides,” stated Dan Hermann, Senior Managing Director, Head of Investment Banking at Ziegler.
