The healthcare industry is undergoing rapid changes, presenting both challenges and opportunities for real estate professionals. As the demand for accessible care and enhanced amenities continues to rise, healthcare real estate has emerged as a top-performing asset class. At the recent Connect Healthcare Real Estate Conference in Newport Beach, California, industry leaders gathered to discuss key takeaways and innovative strategies to meet the evolving needs of communities.
1. Meeting Growing Demand: Despite rising costs, labor shortages, and capital constraints, healthcare real estate remains resilient. Experts project a substantial 25% growth in outpatient care over the next five years, highlighting the importance of strategically locating medical facilities. Accessible care and enhanced amenities are driving the demand for healthcare real estate.
2. AI’s Impact: Artificial Intelligence (AI) is revolutionizing healthcare real estate. By leveraging disaggregated geolocation data, healthcare tenants in retail centers can improve patient accessibility and boost foot traffic and revenue. The potential for AI in optimizing healthcare real estate is immense, making it a pivotal focus for future strategies.
3. Creative Financing Solutions: As deal velocity has declined due to high interest rates and limited capital availability, innovative financing solutions have emerged. “Dequity” bridges the gap between debt and equity, offering landlords creative ways to navigate the financial landscape. Exploring these avenues supports clients’ endeavors and fosters growth.
