Brookdale Senior Living owns and operates senior living communities and retirement communities across the United States. Brookdale was established in 1978 and is based in Brentwood, Tennessee.
In the late 1990s and early 2000s, Fortress Investments became the majority owner of Brookdale, holding approximately 51% of its share. Currently, Glenview Capital Management holds the largest number of shares. Brookdale has approximately 60,000 residents as of June 2021.
As of 2018, it was the largest operator of senior housing in the United States. In 2021, a New York Times investigation revealed that Brooksdale submitted wrong and manipulated data to the government, thus inflating ratings of the quality of care in Brooksdale facilities. Shortly thereafter, the state of California filed a lawsuit against Brooksdale, alleging that the company manipulated the federal government’s nursing-home ratings system.
Brookdale's headquarters remains in Nashville, but a recent acquisition has made Milwaukee, Wisconsin their second largest office.
