Well-known Erik Tellefson named Healthcare Real Estate Executive of the Year

By Murray W. Wolf

At 6’ 6”, Erik Tellefson was a towering presence for his college football teams in the mid-1990s. Today, he remains so on a different playing field, healthcare real estate (HRE), selected by his peers as the HRE Executive of the Year as part of the 2015 HREI Insights Awards™.

“I am honored to have been named this year’s Healthcare Real Estate Executive of the Year,” Mr. Tellefson says. “This industry is home to many innovative, trailblazing professionals, and this recognition by HREI™ magazine and my peers is very special.”
