Caddis, a national healthcare real estate firm, developed the assisted living and memory care residence to fill an important community need  

DALLAS and AMARILLO, Texas, Jan. 13, 2016 – Healthcare Real Estate Insights™ magazine has named the Heartis-Amarillo Assisted Living & Memory Care Community a winner of the 2015 HREI Insights Awards™. Caddis, a national healthcare real estate firm headquartered in Dallas, developed and owns the 63,671 square foot senior living residence at 1601 Research St. in Amarillo.

The annual HREI Insights Awards recognize excellence in healthcare real estate development and executive leadership. Only seven development projects nationwide receive Insights awards each year. Heartis-Amarillo received top honors in the category “Best New Development, Post-Acute & Senior Living Facilities.”

Caddis executives say they are pleased that Heartis-Amarillo was recognized, and they conduct a great deal of research for each Heartis community they develop to determine which geographic markets have the greatest need.

“We used our own proprietary supply and demand program along with mapping software and found an excellent opportunity in Amarillo where the aging population was underserved,” Katie Csobaji, Senior Vice President, Senior Living, says.

“We then visited the market, met with local healthcare providers, performed comprehensive due diligence and confirmed our initial findings that there’s a strong need for an assisted living and memory care community like Heartis-Amarillo.”

Lana Medina, Development Manager of Heartis-Amarillo, added, “We also make sure that we find the ideal site that will serve our residents and their families. Heartis-Amarillo is near shopping, dining, entertainment venues and places of worship, all in a quiet residential setting that feels like home. Our residents’ families also take comfort in the fact that their loved ones live near state-of-the art healthcare facilities. Finally, we designed and developed Heartis-Amarillo so that it would offer residents the highest standards of compassionate care.”

“The HREI Insights Awards judges were very impressed with the hard work and care that Caddis put into developing Heartis-Amarillo,” HREI Insights Publisher Murray Wolf says. “They did their homework and overcame a number of daunting challenges to develop a beautiful community situated in a great setting, offering its residents an impressive list of amenities.”

Heartis-Amarillo features an innovative interior “Main Street” that allows residents to feel more comfortable in a familiar environment that encourages them to connect with their surroundings, other residents, staff and visitors. The Main Street includes a theater, ‘50s-style diner, arts and crafts shop and a garage.

Heartis-Amarillo residents may choose from a range of floor plans, including private suites, semi-private suites and two-bedroom apartments with separate living areas. The community features three interior courtyards, including one dedicated to memory care; daily specialized programming; 24-hour licensed caregivers; chef-prepared, balanced, nutritious meals; a wide variety of amenities; and high quality Class A finishes – all delivered in a warm, nurturing, home-like environment.

The residence is managed by Eugene, Ore.-based Good Neighbor Care, which has a long history of managing senior communities across the country.
