CHICAGO—American Realty Healthcare Trust‘s 143-property portfolio is trading to Ventas in a $2.6-billion stock and cash deal, the two companies announced Monday morning. Separately, Ventas is also buying a Canadian portfolio of independent living seniors housing communities from Holiday Retirement for $900 million.

Debra A. Cafaro, CEO of Chicago-based Ventas, says the two portfolio acquisitions are “consistent with our stated strategy to be the leading owner of healthcare and senior living properties globally, and position Ventas to continue to deliver growth and consistent superior returns to our shareholders. With the addition of ARC Healthcare and the Canadian seniors housing communities, we are continuing our focus on private-pay assets, expanding our industry-leading MOB footprint and international presence, and increasing our diversification while maintaining a strong credit profile and balance sheet.”
