Women in Leadership a Big Focus for Doyenne

Women in Leadership a Big Focus for New Senior Living Company Doyenne

By Tim Regan | February 9, 2023

For Manisha Bathija and Kristen Ahrens, the launch of Doyenne is personal.

Last month, the senior living veterans announced their new company, Doyenne Healthcare Capital, had inked a JV with Rockwood Capital to invest up to $100 million in equity to senior living communities across the U.S.

The company’s initial strategy will be to search for value-add opportunities across the private-pay senior living spectrum, from active adult to memory care. Growing first in larger cities is an initial focus.

Though they are just getting started, both leaders see a long runway for growth ahead.

“I do think we’re going to see a ton of opportunities,” Bathija told Senior Housing News. “I think there’s a lot on the sidelines at the moment that I believe will start coming out later in the year.”

But while growing a thriving senior housing business is their primary goal, they aim to do it “the right way.” For the duo, that means being responsible investors. It also means advancing women and people from other underrepresented groups into leadership roles wherever possible.
