Brent Morrison, Regional Health Properties’ CEO and President said:
The RHE portfolio’s occupancy was loosening as the year came to a close, but the team is optimistic that the vaccination rollout and the reinstatement of family visiting rights would reverse the steady decline by the second half of 2021. RHE has a large and seasoned operating partner portfolio, so they are optimistic in their ability to continue to manage the threats posed by the current pandemic.
