Real estate for health care uses will often be reviewed by the COO or practice manager (many of whom are highly educated and experienced domain experts), per a strategic discussion with the business unit leaders, doctors, or science director.  If that executive could focus their time managing the business or practice management during that important transitional project, would your business be more likely to continue high productivity?

Real estate for smallcap or emerging biotech users will be managed by the COO after strategic plans for lab expansion are discussed in detail with the chief scientists and investors.

HC RE Portf

I have been helping healthcare providers to identify their real estate needs and source attractive choices since 1997.  A portfolio management approach can be applied comprehensively when serving a healthcare enterprise with multiple locations.  The space portfolio is evaluated from a high vantage point (e.g., common to corporate real estate) to assess how the regional presence meets strategic objectives and facilitates competitive advantage (e.g., clinical needs of patients (i.e., preventative, specialty, imaging, hospital, tertiary care), parking, attract competent talent, and secure a percentage of region’s gross patient volume).  My Seven-Point Service manages this transitional process reliably from start to post move-in date.  (Click Case Studies to learn how select completed transactions are similar to your real estate needs). (Completed and planned certifications in CAHIMS and CAPM will enhance the delivery of my search and secure process for you.)

Key points to secure real estate for healthcare includes: re-use percentage of prebuilt space, buildout value and timetable, plumbing and electrical needs, imaging suites, lab suites, parking, rent, additional rent, rent security, lease term, time of year for move-in.

lab-iconKey points for biotech include the above, plus lab layout and equipment, detailed airflow and air quality criteria, HVAC specifications, more involved plumbing and waste disposal needs, higher power needs and UPS, refrigeration, building access controls, assembly storage and loading needs, parking, attributes of lease vs. purchase options.

Review Process. I meet and talk with your COO or practice manager in detail to understand the logistics of your business, your business processes, your location needs, and economic budget.  This discussion produces a set of search criteria for the next real estate to house your headquarters, payer operation, clinical operations, or biotech lab.  Key points to secure real estate for healthcare or biotech includes: corporate real estate approach (e.g., portfolio management, geographic placement, workplace solutions, impact of real estate portfolio on finances per business unit and consolidated enterprise).  If you agree to work with me, I prepare a Tenant Rep agreement to represent your search and secure needs for a fixed number of months.  If you think BREG Health Care can represent the real estate needs of your business, please fill out the “Request A Consultation” form at the base of “About Me” page, type your respective “Health Care” or “Biotech” use in the subject line; include your email signature in the message body.  I reply within 24 hours to arrange a discussion to identify the specific real estate needs of your business.
