Lillibridge Healthcare Services Inc., the largest owner and manager of medical office buildings (MOBs) in the United States and a wholly owned subsidiary of Ventas Inc., will play its biggest role ever at this year’s Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) International Medical Office Buildings and Healthcare Facilities Conference.

Lillibridge will serve as a Diamond Sponsor of the popular annual MOB conference and sponsor six special interest Roundtable Discussions. In addition, three Lillibridge and Ventas executives will serve as speakers and panelists for the Roundtables, as well as another Educational Session.
“Educational, networking conferences such as BOMA are more important than ever in this rapidly changing, challenging healthcare environment,” says Todd W. Lillibridge, President and Chief Executive Officer for Lillibridge and Executive Vice President, Medical Properties for Ventas. “The BOMA MOB conference is a perfect forum for real estate and healthcare executives to collaborate and share ideas that will help them and their companies succeed and thrive, now and in the future.”
“We’ve sponsored BOMA’s Medical Office Buildings and Healthcare Facilities Conference for five years in a row because we believe this event is very important to our industry,” added Vincent M.
