Mauldin, president and CEO of CNL Healthcare Properties. "The acquisition of these properties, our largest single acquisition to date, reaffirms our focus on this important and dynamic sector and represents our first significant investment into the Pacific Northwest."

MorningStar will also manage MorningStar of Billings, an independent living, assisted living and memory care community in Billings, Mont., and MorningStar of Sparks, an independent living, assisted living and memory care community in Sparks, Nevada.
