There are lots of hospitals in Chicago and its suburbs but not a lot of healthcare brands in the marketplace anymore, CBRE's Julie Ford tells us. How will that affect construction? Come hear Julie tomorrow at Bisnow's Healthcare Real Estate Summit at the MidAmerica Club to find out. Sign up now!

Developing new outpatient centers  for each of the major health systems within their secondary and tertiary markets has become especially necessary, she says, like CBRE’s most recent project management gig for Edward Health Services, which involves immediate care centers and physician's offices. Julie spent most of her career working for both the private health system and healthcare consultants before joining CBRE last quarter. She says there are just a handful of independent doctors practicing now; most are joining larger medical groups in buildings specifically designed for medical office use. Hospital medical groups are getting more competitive, too, with each one trying to spread its reach both geographically and in terms of specialty practice groups. For more details, join us tomorrow!
