Brookdale Senior Living becomes first senior living organization to join Partner Program and engage innovative, sector-specific healthcare companies

Brookdale Senior Living Inc. will be the first senior living collaborator under the Innovation Partner Program. Health:Further began its Innovation Partner Program earlier this year, working with leading organizations in the healthcare and health and wellness industries looking to engage more with innovative companies that are providing solutions within those industries. Brookdale expects to work with Health:Further to expand its ability to identify companies providing solutions that can advance the customer and associate experience. Because of Brookdale’s positioning within senior living, this work has the potential to elevate the entire industry.

"Brookdale is the clear leader in the senior living market, their reach is unmatched,” said Marcus Whitney, CEO & Co-Founder Health:Further. “We are thrilled to work with them to find the next generation of solution providers who will help Brookdale lead the industry to the next level, and potentially have the opportunity to improve the lives of more than 100,000 people who Brookdale serves every day.”

“Helping our residents age well is a critical focus at Brookdale, and we want to lead the senior living industry as an innovator in delivering the highest quality of care.” said Ryan Wilson, Chief Growth Officer for Brookdale. “Working with Health:Further complements our already existing innovations efforts, and we expect this collaboration to provide us a deeper connection with healthcare innovators and partners, ultimately elevating the resident and associate experience.”

Brookdale will conduct targeted Innovation Searches using Health:Further’s platform. Additionally, Brookdale will participate at the Health:Further 2017 Festival in the event’s Industry Hours segment, with executives and members of their internal innovation team meeting with companies that can provide original solutions for the senior living industry. Companies looking to interact with Brookdale at the Health:Further 2017 Festival, August 22-25 in Nashville, TN, should contact Health:Further directly.
