|Healthcare tenants have miniscule default rates, higher renewal averages, and invest considerably in their spaces, according to Noyack Medical Partners managing principal CJ Follini. (If that doesn't captivate you, pretend we said it while trapped in a balloon.)|
|CJ tells us walk-in clinics at retail locations will proliferate, due to the importance of primary care physicians under health reform.
