About Sante Image

Santé, a senior and post-acute healthcare company, was founded in 2008 by C. Mark Hansen, Sterling Short and Jim Tellatin with a focus on providing a compassionate continuum of care. Since its inception, Santé has opened four care facilities in Arizona—Santé of Mesa, Santé of Surprise, Santé of Chandler and Santé of North Scottsdale—with a fifth, Santé of Tucson, scheduled to open in 2016. Santé also owns Santé Home Health and Rehabilitation Services to provide our guests with the same exceptional care in the comfort of their own home.

Santé acquired Encore Communities, an independent living, assisted living and TRC campus in Silverdale, Washington for $23 million in 2012. A $2.4 million expansion of the TRC with 37 new private rooms was completed in 2013. The Ridge, a 51-unit memory care community, was acquired and added to the Encore Communities’ continuum of care in 2014.
