Greene Park Capital, a Chicago-based healthcare real estate investment firm, has tapped veteran senior living executive Kevin Carden to lead its newly formed senior living investment platform. The company intends to concentrate on small-to-mid-sized operators with sophisticated management teams poised for substantial growth.
