Firm has just released the first widely available, comprehensive national healthcare real estate data for the estimated $1.2 trillion healthcare real estate sector – and the numbers show that construction is active

ANNAPOLIS, Md., Nov. 24, 2014 – Revista, a one-stop source for healthcare and real estate organizations to obtain industry-focused data, has just unveiled a healthcare real estate (HRE) database on virtually every medical property in the country. Available on, this is the first widely available, comprehensive medical property database.
Key components of the database include:
● More than 51,000 medical properties worth in excess of $880 billion
● $22 billion of transaction records on more than 5,000 properties
● More than $59 billion of construction information on hospitals, MOBs and other healthcare properties

The database focuses on hospitals, medical office buildings (MOBs), medical condo buildings, freestanding emergency departments and office buildings with medical tenants, and medical retail.

“Healthcare executives have really been hindered by the lack of comprehensive, reliable, national and regional data about medical real estate. But now it’s finally available,” says Revista Advisory Board Member Joshua Teague, Director – Real Estate for BJC Healthcare.  “Hospitals and health systems face greater pressure than ever to be more efficient and cut costs while also delivering high quality healthcare services. The new database should help them make more informed decisions about their medical real estate, better reach their goals and improve patient care and satisfaction.”

Revista also reports on the size of the investment grade medical real estate sector, which is defined as purpose-built healthcare facilities that are greater than 7,500 square feet.  This sector is comprised of 36,000+ properties totaling 2.8 billion+ square feet and $884 billion in value. This includes:
● 5,000+ hospitals totaling 1.5 billion+ square feet and $569 billion in value, and
● 31,000+ medical office buildings totaling 1.3 billion+ square feet and $315 billion in value.

When other healthcare properties such as nursing homes and assisted living communities are added to the list of hospitals and medical office buildings, the HRE sector nationwide is estimated at $1.2 trillion in value – a significant asset class.

Robert Milligan, Executive Vice President of Corporate Finance and Capital markets at HTA, a Revista partner, noted, “A number of statistics in Revista’s database really stood out. It was astounding to see that the value of the healthcare real estate sector is estimated at $1.2 trillion. That makes the Revista database even more valuable for helping health providers and real estate professionals understand this huge sector and the trends occurring across the country and in individual markets.”

Along with the data release, Revista is posting key summary statistics on the top 10 largest metro areas of the U.S.  Here is a summary of those statistics:
