“This report is the product of discussions with numerous lenders, real estate brokers, investment bankers and various other medical office entities, on subjects such as industry drivers, financial markets, capitalization rates, internal rates of return, as well as current trends and overall market conditions.” said Jeff Piehl, MAI, Partner at HealthCare Appraisers, Real Estate Team Lead, and author of the report. “Certainly COVID-19 has had significant impact on market fundamentals for medical office buildings. While there remains an overall elevated risk to the economy over the next 6 to 12 months, investors appear to remain bullish on well-sponsored and well-located medical office real estate.”

Various world health leaders and bio-tech company leaders are hopeful that, through new therapies or vaccine advancements, the world will soon be able to move to a semblance of the pre COVID-19 past, where people are able to mingle and move through society without fear of contagion. Until then, the medical office community will continue to deal with effects and after effects of the pandemic, ranging from full forced government closure or re-purposing of facilities, such as ambulatory surgical centers (ASCs), to social distancing guidelines and public fear of indoor spaces for other facilities such as standard doctors’ offices, which were not forced to close due to government regulations. Patients have been hesitant to return to see their physicians, but are slowly beginning to have a better understanding of how to safely navigate the “return to work” new reality in order to receive routine care.
