The sale price was $85 million, including a $6-million lease termination fee.

The assets Ventas sold to Kindred are: two hospitals, located in Minnesota and Michigan, and eight skilled nursing facilities located in Kentucky, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Wisconsin. The hospitals contain 332 beds and the eight skilled nursing facilities contain 1,080 beds.
