Earlier this month, Shane Twomey (Director of Business Development) and I attended a healthcare real estate due diligence conference in California, hosted by Griffin American Healthcare. We spent two days taking a deep dive into the healthcare industry, and discussing how the current demographic trends are driving the increased demand for healthcare and the real estate that supports it. The discussion focused specifically on several types of healthcare facilities including hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, senior living, and medical office buildings and how the combination of the aging population and the ever-changing healthcare reform uniquely impacts each of these facilities. Over the next several weeks, our investment committee will be evaluating several investment companies that have a focus on healthcare-related real estate, since we feel that this specific sector of the real estate industry could be a valuable addition to some of our clients’ portfolios.
