BONITA SPRINGS, Fla., May 12, 2021 (Source: Newswire.com) – Discovery Senior Living (“Discovery”) today announced a new partnership with an affiliate of Lone Star Funds (“Lone Star”) in which the senior living provider has entered into a long-term management agreement of the Discovery Village portfolio, which includes 10 amenity- and service-rich communities across Florida, Texas and Georgia.

Hutchinson, CEO of Discovery Senior Living. “Lone Star shares our passion for delivering an exceptional lifestyle experience, and together, we’re extremely bullish about the future of this portfolio, the industry in general, and our collective ability to differentiate ourselves for current and future customers and team members.”
“We are very excited to be working alongside Discovery Senior Living, a best-in-class seniors housing developer and operator, and believe strongly in the quality of care that Discovery Village offers its residents,” said Jérôme Foulon, Senior Managing Director, Lone Star Funds. “We look forward to the opportunities that our relationship with Discovery Senior Living can unlock over time.”
