REAL ES­TATE

Modern Healthcare - - NEWS MAKERS -

Robert Probst has been named CFO at Ven­tas, a real es­tate in­vest­ment trust work­ing with health­care or­ga­ni­za­tions.

Probst, 46, will over­see the fi­nan­cial op­er­a­tions of Chicago-based Ven­tas start­ing in Oc­to­ber. Ven­tas, one of the largest health­care REITs, owns the prop­er­ties of more than 1,500 se­nior-liv­ing fa­cil­i­ties, skilled-nurs­ing fa­cil­i­ties, med­i­cal of­fice build­ings and hos­pi­tals, as of June 30. And it’s primed to be get­ting even larger. The REIT is wait­ing to fi­nal­ize its $2.6 bil­lion ac­qui­si­tion of Amer­i­can Realty Cap­i­tal Health­care Trust, ex­pected to close by year’s end.

Probst pre­vi­ously served as CFO of Beam, par­ent company of sev­eral hard-liquor brands such as Jim Beam bour­bon. He also worked in the health­care in­dus­try as VP of Baxter In­ter­na­tional’s med­i­ca­tion de­liv­ery business line.
