Louis Badenhorst turned more than a few heads during Thursday’s DeSoto Memorial Hospital board meeting when he presented the board and administration with a letter of intent to purchase DMH’s management and lease the building.
A South Africa native who immigrated to the United States in 2001, Badenhorst has been heavily involved in managing and operating senior living and skilled care facilities since 1986. He recently purchased DeSoto Health and Rehab, which is one of several elderly care facilities he currently owns through his business, Pioneer Life Care in Lake Mary. Although he’s a newcomer to the area, Badenhorst says he enjoys DeSoto County and is even considering purchasing property in the near future.
