It doesn’t look as if anyone is going to dethrone Oakland, Calif.-based Kaiser Permanente as the country’s largest owner of medical real estate anytime soon.
For the sixth consecutive year, Kaiser, a health insurer and provider with 8.6 million members in nine states, sat atop the annual “2018 Top 50 Owners of Medical Real Estate” report compiled by Revista, which gathers and provides a wide variety of healthcare real estate (HRE) data, statistics and reports for its subscribing members.
Taken together, the Hospital and MOB sector is valued at $1 Trillion
There are currently about 600 medical office projects under way across the country. More than 15 percent of those projects include orthopedics. Why do so many projects include this specialty?
Revista is thrilled to announce that Andrew Haslam, Chief Asset Officer for Providence St. Joseph’s Health System and Tom Errath, Director for Harrison Street Real Estate Capital will co-chair the 2020 Revista Medical Real Estate Investment Forum.
The country’s healthcare-focused REITs have always been, and are likely to continue to be, an important investor group in the medical office building (MOB) acquisitions sector.
While MOB transaction activity might have cooled somewhat and MOB construction remains steady, deliveries of hospital projects have been on a spike. Based on projects that have either opened or are scheduled to open by the end of the year, we will be adding roughly 35 million square feet to inventory in 2019.
There’s plenty of talk in the medical office building (MOB) sales sector that even though demand remains as high as ever for the product type, the volume has been quiet so far in 2019. Second quarter (Q2) and year-to-date MOB sales statistics compiled by healthcare real estate (HRE) data firm Revista, which provides a variety of HRE data to subscribers, confirm this notion.
These new reports detail transaction activity for 3 types of investors – Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs), Hospitals and Health Systems and Private Investors. Each of the 3 reports provides detail on volume trends, pricing, share data, as well as data for the most active investors and metro areas.
2017 witnessed record MOB sales and outsized portfolio sales, but a notable shift occurred in the hot money – a theme that dominates the landscape in early 2018.
Here are the top 5 markets. The most active market during this time has been LA/Orange County which has seen $2.9B worth of MOB transaction volumes. LA/Orange also has the lowest cap rate/yield at 5.7%.
Revista has posted its 2017 Year End Transactions Reports for subscribers to its data service. By most accounts, 2017 was a record year for the sector in terms of transaction volume. Overall $21.8B worth of hospital and medical office real estate traded hands in 2017.
MedCraft Healthcare Real Estate was the most active developer in 2017 with a total of 8 projects and 470,000 square feet started or completed. NexCore Group was the most active for project starts and HTA Development LLC was the most active for project completions.
