Our Experience in Senior Living

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 healthcare residences including Independent Living, Assisted Living, Memory Care 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 senior living industry professionals, 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, we continue to benefit from the Bainum family’s long-term focus in senior living, with two generations of Bainum family members active in the oversight of Artis, including holding seats on boards of directors.

Artis Senior Living’s nationwide portfolio includes 27 Assisted Living and Memory Care communities in operation, and many more in various stages of planning and development.
