Welltower Forges Partnership for “Future of Senior Living”

Welltower Inc. has formed a new relationship with Monarch Communities, a vertically integrated senior living provider with expertise in development, design-build, management and long-term ownership. The Hooksett, NH-based Monarch was launched in 2019 by industry veterans Michael Glynn, Ross Dingman, and Andrew Teeters.

“Monarch is an ideal fit to our long-term vision in senior living,” said Welltower CEO Shankh Mitra. “Monarch’s turnkey business model will create a vertically integrated solution for all aspects of the senior living space—from sourcing opportunities, to design and construction, to operations and long-term ownership. We are excited to be partnering with Michael, Andrew and Ross and supporting their dynamic paradigm for the future of senior living.”

The partnership is breaking ground this month on its inaugural senior housing development, Monarch Cooper’s Corner in New Rochelle, NY. Welltower and Monarch are also working together to reposition several Welltower communities in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast regions.
