Who We Are
Hamister Group, LLC is a recognized leader in healthcare and hotel management, with over 45 years of history and an extraordinary record of business success. We focus on providing extraordinary service for our customers and have earned a sterling reputation for delivering superior management results.
Mark Hamister, Founder, started his first healthcare company in 1977. The company evolved into National Health Care Affiliates, Inc. and grew to become one of the largest healthcare companies in the United States. National Health Care Affiliates, Inc. made the Inc. 500 list five times during the 1980s, earning the company a spot in the Inc. Magazine Hall of Fame. In 1996, the majority of National Health Care Affiliates business units were sold, earning a 37.2% rate of return for our investors.
We diversified our operations in 2004 with the establishment of a hotel management division. Since that time, we have become one of the fastest-growing hotel management companies in the nation as rated by Inc. Magazine, and we were recently rated among the top 100 hotel management companies in the United States by Hotel Business Magazine. Our properties consistently achieve the highest honors in guest satisfaction, operations excellence and financial results. We are associated with some of the most recognized names in the hospitality industry, including Marriott, Hilton and InterContinental.
Healthcare also continues to be an important part of our business. Our facilities strive to deliver the highest quality assisted living, memory care and independent living services available.
Today, this second-generation family business manages a portfolio of hotel and healthcare properties in six states, with more than 800 employees united in their desire to provide exceptional service to our customers, colleagues, and business partners. In addition, we are constantly striving for positive growth into new markets and are actively pursuing investment partners as we focus on both business acquisitions and new development.
