Providing healthcare has never been more challenging, and real estate is paying an increasingly important role in both the successful servicing of patients and the ongoing financial strength of the care organization.

As traditional models give way to new reimbursement care delivery models, Cushman & Wakefield’s Healthcare Practice Group consistently delivers exceptional service, significant savings, and innovative real estate strategies to our healthcare clients.

We help our clients:

• Develop and execute ambulatory strategies, including urgent care centers, free-standing emergency departments, and other patient-centered care
• Align their portfolios with their strategic plans and clinical directions
• Execute a process-driven approach to maximize the value of their portfolios
• Lease and manage their real estate portfolios
• Evaluate acquisition and disposition opportunities and prepare for future expansion
• Design and build space for uses ranging from patient examinations to laboratories, office and administrative functions, testing facilities, surgical areas, and conference rooms - in existing buildings or new developments
• Conduct fair market value studies, appraisals, and other valuation and feasibility assessments
• Implement and manage compliance programs

Our clients include healthcare systems, physician practices, ancillary healthcare service providers – such as imaging, occupational and physical therapy, and dialysis – as well as institutional and private investors.
