Mission & purpose

For more than two decades, Ventas, Inc., an S&P 500 company and one of the world’s foremost Real Estate Investment Trusts (REIT), has operated as the premier capital provider to leading senior living, healthcare operators and research institutions. With more than $36 billion of investments under our belt, we own communities where patients and their families receive health and healing; where world class researchers discover treatments for disease; and where seniors live with dignity. Thanks to our financial strength and liquidity, our stock and robust dividend provides secure retirement savings and income to pensioners, firefighters, teachers and individuals around the world. We take our ESG (Environment, Social & Governance) commitments seriously. We’ve set meaningful ESG goals aligned to three pillars – People, Performance, Planet - emphasizing strong corporate governance; encouraging community engagement through social and financial support to communities where we live and work; and minimizing our environmental impact by protecting the planet while lowering operating costs and improving portfolio efficiency. We're honored to receive many external recognitions for our efforts: Ventas was named to the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index for the first time in 2019 and received Nareit’s 2019 Health Care Leader in the Light award for the fourth time. We were the first REIT to sign the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion and are a “Winning Company” on the 2020 Women on Boards Gender Diversity Index recognizing our 30% female Board. Our CEO, Debra A. Cafaro, is a leader widely-acclaimed for her strategic vision, and is ranked #29 in Harvard Business Review’s CEO 100, one of only 14 global CEOs named to HBR’s list consistently since 2014. Our team is what truly differentiates us – our winning competitive edge is due to a rare combination of drive and skill and a commitment to excellence that fuels everything we do.
