CPMC decided to replace its aging St. Luke’s hospital with a new acute-care facility. The site was master planned to phase the project around a historic 1970s building and allow for continued use of the nearby existing building until the new hospital could be occupied. The new hospital is a seven-story, 120-private bed facility occupying 215,000 square feet. The project is LEED Silver certified and built to meet the state’s seismic requirements. The hospital was slated to open in 2019, but was delivered five months ahead of schedule due to the use of innovative building techniques, including advanced 3-D modeling.

Post-Acute & Senior Living Facilities Best New Ground-Up Development: Heartis Village North Shore, Glendale, Wis. Developer: Caddis. A primary challenge of Caddis’ first senior living project in Wisconsin was environmental as a nearby industrial facility had previously brought construction waste onto the project site. Also, Caddis needed approval not only from the city, but also the property owner’s association, as well as approval to add senior housing as a permissible use. Today, the community is situated in a beautiful area with access to local healthcare services. To capitalize on the proximity to the Milwaukee River, Caddis built a walkway to the river for easy access by residents. The property owner’s association has enthusiastically embraced the community.

Finalists:
PAM (Post Acute Medical) Rehabilitation Hospital of Centennial Hills, Las Vegas, Sina Companies
Heritage Crossing Assisted Living & Memory Care, Akron, Ohio, NexCore Group
Heartis MidCities, Bedford, Texas, Caddis

Lifetime Achievement Award: Michael A. Noto. Before he joined the healthcare real estate (HRE) sector, Michael A. Noto worked in commercial lending and then became an attorney and built a successful law practice in New York in the 1980s and ‘90s. He moved his family to Florida where he met the late Bruce A. Rendina, founder of what is now Rendina Healthcare Real Estate. Mr. Noto provided legal services for the firm and then was asked to run Rendina’s property management company, which at that time had a portfolio had about 35 buildings. In 2005, Rendina sold about 28 medical office buildings (MOBs) to Windrose Medical Properties Trust, which was, in turn, acquired in 2006 by Health Care REIT, now Toledo, Ohio-based Welltower (NYSE: WELL). In 2007, Windrose, then operating as a business unit of Health Care REIT, acquired another 18 MOBs from Rendina, as well as the firm’s affiliated Paramount property management group, which was headed by Mr. Noto. The REIT, which had previously focused on senior housing, relied on Mr. Noto to help it navigate the medical office sector. During Mr. Noto’s decade with Health Care REIT/Welltower, the REIT grew its MOB portfolio to 250 properties by making acquisitions and developing properties through its numerous joint venture partnerships. During this time, Mr. Noto became well known as an expert speaker and panelist at HRE industry conferences. Mr. Noto retired in summer 2018 and now lives with his wife, Carol, near the beach in Jupiter, Fla.
