HREI forms new Editorial Advisory Board


By Murray W. Wolf

Healthcare Real Estate Insights has announced the formation of its first Editorial Advisory Board.


The board is composed of 12 widely recognized industry leaders active in healthcare real estate development, financing, advisory services, consulting and other areas, according to HREI editor John Mugford.


The board is strictly advisory,” Mr. Mugford explains. “It makes recommendations to the publisher and editor, but is not a governing body.”

Board members are asked to provide us with their guidance, counsel and, most of all, time, to ensure we continue to report the most relevant, accurate and vital information about healthcare real estate.”

The board includes:

■ Philip “P.J.” Camp, Shattuck Hammond Partners

■ Charles A. Elcan, Medcap Properties Inc.

■ Frederick L. Farrar, Windrose Medical Properties Trust

■ Sharon Harper, Plaza Cos.

■ Raymond J. Lewis, Ventas Inc.

■ James M. Moloney, Cain Brothers & Co.

■ Kevin O’Neil, Trammell Crow Co.

■ Howard K. Patterson, HCA Inc.

■ Bruce A. Rendina, Rendina Cos.

■ William B. Roberson, GE Healthcare Financial Services

■ Robert A. Rosenthal, Pacific Medical Buildings

■ Jonathan L. Winer, Ernst & Young

The board’s contributions will include:

■ Providing ideas for the direction of the publication and ancillary products

■ Contributing ideas for news or feature coverage

■ Providing critiques on the content of the publication

■ Giving occasional interviews or quotes for writers and editors

■ Participating in annual roundtable discussions about hot topics

■ Meeting periodically to discuss trends in the industry (to be published as a panel discussion in the newsletter) and to critique the newsletter

“We are also considering some exciting new ways to improve our coverage and visibility in the industry,” Mr. Mugford says. “So, we are eager to get the board’s input on those ideas.”

Mr. Mugford emphasizes that those who were not asked to be on the board at this time should not feel slighted.

“There were many qualified candidates but only 12 openings,” he says. “So, we mostly went with people we’ve known the longest and who have been loyal supporters of HREI since the publication was launched.”


“But, it was tough to choose. When these board members’ terms expire, we look forward to bringing on other qualified members.” q
