Enters into Management Agreement for 8 Communities in Illinois with Cedarhurst Senior Living

New Agreements Now Executed for Approximately 78% of the Transitioning Communities

Diversified Healthcare Trust (Nasdaq: DHC) announced today that it has entered into a new management agreement with Cedarhurst Senior Living for seven assisted living communities and one memory care community within its Senior Housing Operating Portfolio (“SHOP”). All of these communities are located in Illinois and include 486 units. DHC has now entered into new management agreements representing approximately 78% of its SHOP communities to be transitioned from Five Star Senior Living Inc. (Nasdaq: FVE) to other third-party operators as previously announced. DHC continues to expect to complete all of the management transitions at the 108 transitioning communities by year end.
