Medical office buildings are having a moment, as we say in our feature on page 8 and that is also true for the entire range of healthcare real estate assets, more or less. It is being fueled by headwinds that include an aging boomer population and the still-overwhelming demand by patients to get their healthcare services in person at a physical site. Medical professionals also tend to be among the most creditworthy tenants. These dynamics are attracting new buyers to the space, even as deal flow across CRE has slowed considerably. Not that navigating this space is easy; healthcare real estate also includes the always complex category of skilled nursing and even medical office buildings come with certain challenges. The men, women, teams, and companies we have selected as having the greatest impact in this category in the last year, though, are well-suited to address both the upside healthcare offers and its downsides.
