Health Care REIT, Inc. - Toledo, OH


At Welltower Inc. (NYSE:HCN) we are driving innovation in health care infrastructure and delivery.  We envision a new model of care that revolves around wellness – living well, aging well and keeping people out of the hospital.  We partner with leading seniors housing and post-acute-care providers and with health systems to fund innovative solutions designed to keep patients out of higher cost, higher acuity settings while delivering better treatment at a lower cost.   Our impact will be profound as we advance our work, our mission, and continue to assemble a diverse, talented, performance-focused team of employees.


The Portfolio Management group facilitates the collection of seniors housing data from Welltower’s operators, calculates key performance metrics, forecasts portfolio performance, coordinates portfolio management activities and reports portfolio performance to company management and Wall Street analysts.  The increasing complexity of the business, as well as the continuous evolution of the senior housing industry require analysts to have a deep understanding of the business/industry plus the ability to deal with complex analysis leveraging large amounts of data. Ultimately the person in this role needs an understanding of SEC financial reporting, accounting, seniors housing, and experience working with various analytical tools and SQL databases.  Additionally, a successful person in this role must have a strong desire to pursue continuous personal development in order to keep up with the latest technologies and analytics tools, as well as changes in the business and the seniors housing industry.


Portfolio Analysts are responsible for:

This includes supporting the management/continued development of the SQL application responsible for aggregating companywide accounting/financial results, as well as managing the generation of aggregated data into disclosure management software and reviewing results. The supplement is a highly utilized document by Wall Street analysts in valuing the company and has come under increasingly high scrutiny by the SEC and its regulations.

4. Serve as a “Go to” contributor for advanced ad hoc analytical projects that include pulling portfolio performance from multiple accounting systems and operational databases.  This includes mining unstructured data as well as creating tools/applications that support the completion of and/or automate the analysis.
