Our National Healthcare Summit
Want to get a jump-start on upcoming deals? Meet the major Chicago players at one of our upcoming events!
|Now that the election is over, we're positive you'll want to sign up for our first-ever National Healthcare Summit, Nov. 8 & 9, Radisson Blu Hotel. (That's tomorrow. So be spontaneous. It's healthy for you.) We'll be featuring top execs like Anchor Health Care Properties CEO Paula Crowley whose company builds healthcare facilities that break the mold. Take the Health Center at Moselem Springs that Anchor developed in Kutztown, Pa. with Lehigh Valley Hospital and Health Network—it overhauled an old inn that sits in the center of town rather than find a site in an office or industrial park. Service delivery is centralized and records computerized. Each patient checks in just once, regardless of how many providers they see. Plus they can wait near a fireplace (which has to be better than sitting in a mauve waiting room listening to smooth jazz and reading old copies of Cosmo).|
|Another featured speaker is Trammell Crow Co managing director for healthcare Jud Jacobs, who tells us he's planning to break ground by year-end on their third MOB for the Christus Santa Rosa Hospital in San Antonio's Westover Hills submarket (existing MOB there is above). A lump of coal for the holidays: the remarkably low construction costs of the recession are the gift that won't keep giving. Jud expects a tab for the 70k SF facility's base building that may run 25% higher than the price bid for a similar building on the same campus developed during the downturn. Cold comfort: construction costs are still 18% below peak and demand is strong. Registration for our event is one click away.|
