It has been one year since state and local governments issued stay-at-home lockdown orders with a state of emergency declared in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. As the pandemic unfolded throughout the subsequent bulk of 2020, we have witnessed and experienced the effects of these policies – and administration shifts – in all aspects of life, including the capital markets and the combined impacts on the healthcare real estate industry.
The behavioral healthcare industry is rapidly changing as demand for behavioral health care services grows and the recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic gains strength across the country. The outlook for consolidation and acquisition deals in 2021 is active and will continue to grow, as interest rates remain low and investor interest in behavioral health real estate remains hot.
In our first Scioto Properties Healthcare Real Estate Update, we provide a summary of the healthcare real estate transactions that occurred in 4Q-2020, and also offer an overview of how the sector is shaping up for more deal transactions in 2021.
