When writing about the healthcare-property market in the greater Houston area, the first thing we must acknowledge is that Houston is home to the Texas Medical Center (“TMC”), the world’s largest medical center and the eighth largest business district in the U.S. With that comes 50 million developed square feet in the TMC alone...
Many developers and owners of ambulatory surgical centers (ASC) and medical office buildings (MOB) are physicians or health care operators with entrepreneurial natures.
The architecture and design of hospitals and medical space is evolving with changes to the delivery and venue of healthcare. Hospital beds take up valuable space, but reimbursement remains critically important to both...
At least two facts come together to make a very healthy medical real estate market: (1) Houston leads the nation in population growth, and (2) the Accountable Care Act requires health care providers to improve care while reducing expenses...

Many 2016 healthcare trends will continue from 2015; but some trends will be more noticeable. Overall, medical providers want to be more accessible to patients, provide better care and lower expenses. For real estate investors who focus on healthcare properties, here’s a list of what you may expect...
There has been a narrowing of the gap between cap rates of various healthcare property types. World capital markets and the lack of available products are driving this change. Institutional investors have moved towards real estate and see medical real estate as a stable alternative.
When institutional investors consider real estate, they traditionally see healthcare real estate as a stable alternative. In the recent past, they could assume an 80% renewal rate from doctors in medical office buildings, but that has changed. Most of what healthcare property developers are designing and building today is targeted for a single tenant with multiple specialties and departments.
Remember when, if your doctor suggested that you make an appointment with a specialist to further test you for high blood pressure and possible related issues, he expected you to find your own cardiologist? Have you noticed lately that when your primary care physician wants you to have more specialized testing done, he refers you directly to a specific doctor or group?
Things have changed for physicians since the “good ol’ days” of just a few years ago. Their income has been greatly affected by reduced reimbursements by Medicare, Medicaid and insurance companies. The Affordable Care Act is putting the spotlight on return on investment (ROI) by scrutinizing costs while increasing care for patients, and doctors are discovering they will be penalized if they don’t purchase software and equipment in order to convert to new electronic health records.
There are many trends in the healthcare real estate industry, but one of the more obvious ones is the new convenience factor for patients. If you are in a mid-size to large city, you have probably noticed all sorts of medical-care options popping up in your neighborhoods, at major intersections, along well-traveled streets and even in your favorite department store or drug store.
