Welltower's Thomas DeRosa speaks: Is the investor community listening?
The wellness movement is in full swing. Recent research conducted by the International Council on Active Aging® (ICAA) shows that wellness is now widely accepted and adopted by ICAA member organizations. Even with all this positive movement, staffing levels for wellness are lacking. So, too, is appropriate funding. Could it be that investors, equity partners and chief financial officers do not see the financial benefits of healthy, happy residents in a care-focused model? Visionaries know better. One such individual is Thomas J. DeRosa, MBA, chief executive officer and director of Welltower™ Inc., a company that "invests in the transformation of health care infrastructure."
