The 2011 LeadingAge Ziegler 100 (LZ 100) report incorporates ten years of survey data and presents snapshots of data as well as ten-year trends for multiple areas of not-for-profit senior living and aging services. The publication’s primary ranking lists not-for-profit multi-site senior living providers on the basis of their market-rate unit count as of December 31, 2010.
Included with the report are separate rankings of affordable (government-subsidized) housing providers, health-care-sponsored senior living providers, and single-campus senior living providers. Readers should note that two types of systems have been intentionally excluded from the AZ 100 primary ranking: (1) systems that are composed primarily of government-subsidized (affordable) housing and (2) systems that are composed primarily of acute or post-acute services or health care systems. Data for these systems are included in the health-care-sponsored listing within the publication.
Again in 2011, it is noteworthy that100 of 100 organizations responded to the survey. Some of the key findings from the compilation of the data include:
1) A wide disparity between the size of the smallest and largest not-for-profit multi-site senior living provider: the systems range from 796 units (Morningside Ministries, TX) to 18,803 units (Evangelical Lutheran Good Samaritan Society, SD).
2) Over half (61 percent) of the AZ 100 either had no growth or reduced their unit count in 2010.
3) Nearly 90 percent of the AZ 100 offer designated memory-support units and more than 160 small house communities are sponsored by these organizations, a significant increase in both areas from the prior two years.
New to the publication’s research in 2011 is a snapshot of the AZ 100’s corporate level positions and their reporting executive; e.g., 71 of the AZ 100 report a Risk Management executive within their organizations, with 25 percent of these reporting to the CEO, 24 percent reporting to the CFO and 15 percent reporting to the COO, with the remainder reporting to “other”.
The 214-page publication examines the AZ100’s locations, age, unit mix, pace of growth, type of growth, etc. to inform the reader on the characteristics of the nation’s largest not-for-profit senior living providers. The publication is available at no charge at www.ziegler.com.
