A History of Success
Artis Senior Living was founded by the Bainum family, well-known for their decades of success in a variety of industries since 1944. The late Stewart Bainum Sr. opened his first state-of-the-art nursing center in 1960 and went on to create and operate a variety of successful senior living and health care residences including Independent Living, Assisted Living, Memory Care Assisted Living and Nursing Care communities.
The Bainum family also knows success in other industries such as multifamily housing, real estate development, pharmacies, hospitals, construction and hospitality, as Stewart Bainum, Sr. was also the founder of Choice Hotels International.
Building a New Approach to Memory Care
In 2012, the Bainum family, along with a group of seasoned professionals in the senior living industry, drew on their long history of serving the needs of seniors and founded Artis Senior Living. From the very start, their dedication to residents and unique approach to Memory Care pioneered The Artis Way philosophy that we live each day.
Today, Artis Senior Living continues to benefit from the Bainum’s long-term focus in senior living with two generations of Bainum family members active in the oversight of Artis Senior Living, including holding seats on boards of directors.
Artis Senior Living’s nationwide portfolio includes over 20 Assisted Living communities in operation, and many more in various stages of planning and development.
