And when I say MOB, I’m talking about Medical Office Buildings. It’s an acronym.
This blog has no affiliation with the mob.
Let me start over. The idea for this post came from a great CoStar Group article published last month. In it, Randyl Drummer points out the uptick in medical office deals that’s resulted from changes in medical care, technology, demographics, and healthcare regulation (i.e., the Affordable Care Act).
Mr. Drummer explains,

Thursday’s Executive Interview with Kevin McGowan has gotten me thinking about current legislation and its impact on our industry. Particularly, I’ve been pondering the effect of the Supreme Court’s controversial ruling in support of Obama’s Affordable Care Act. What are the long-term effects of such political actions, especially when it comes to CRE’s healthcare and senior living sectors?
The initial reactions from healthcare REIT execs, such as Debra Cafaro of Ventas (NYSE: VTR), have been very positive. After all, increasing medical coverage to a greater percentage of the population will naturally create a higher demand for new or expanded hospital and medical office buildings. As the investment community looks forward to this increased opportunity, the healthcare sector is enjoying greater prominence and activity. Read the rest of this entry »
