Blueprint announced today it is launching a Behavioral Healthcare advisory group to join its existing offerings of Seniors Housing and Care, Medical Office, and Capital Markets. Industry veteran Andrew Sfreddo will serve as Head of Behavioral Healthcare, and fellow behavioral healthcare real estate veteran, Shane Harmon, will serve as Senior Director.
In 2020, behavioral healthcare accounted for $90.5B of U.S. market value and is on track to reach $132.4B by 2027 – a 5.3% compound annual growth rate. Blueprint attributes the rapid growth to increased state and federal funding and legislative efforts for mental healthcare services in the U.S.
“We are at a pivotal moment where we’re seeing a culmination of factors rapidly increase the need for behavioral healthcare facilities and operations throughout the U.S.” said Andrew Sfreddo, Head of Behavioral Healthcare. “Our expansion will support government efforts and provide patients and providers access to high-quality behavioral healthcare centers across the country.”
Blueprint’s model of delivering best-in-class services has earned them recognition as the most active advisor in the seniors housing and care space for five consecutive years. Together, Sfreddo and Harmon add a combined 40+ years of healthcare real estate and private equity experience, with 10+ years of dedicated behavioral healthcare experience.
“It’s an exciting and humbling opportunity to play a part in modernizing and expanding mental healthcare services nationwide. With Sfreddo’s leadership and Blueprint’s proven track record, we are in an excellent position to serve our existing clients and forge new and impactful relationships throughout the space,” said Steven Thomes, Executive Managing Director and Head of Business Development.
