Additional tenants include large regional physician groups such as North Atlanta Women’s Specialists and North Chattahoochee Family Medicine, providing a synergistic mix of primary care and specialty services. “We’re pleased to continue our growth in the Atlanta market as one of our largest US growth areas,” said James Schmid, Chief Investment Officer with Anchor. “Within the last year, we have had the opportunity to enter the Atlanta market with scale and see continued growth there on the horizon. The Atlanta market has one of the fastest rates for job growth in the country as well as very favorable healthcare demographics and health system sponsorship. We look forward to bringing the full resources and capabilities of the Anchor team to bear in supporting our medical tenants in the market.” Launching a regional management office in Atlanta, Anchor Health Properties will provide go forward property and asset management at the facility and others in the regional Anchor portfolio, effectively growing the Company’s investment and property management portfolio in the region to nearly 200,000 square feet.
