Healthcare: Consolidate or Die
By the time you finish reading this sentence, the healthcare industry's going to change beyond recognition.
Actually, it only seems that fast, as our panelists stressed at Bisnow's third annual Orange County Healthcare Real Estate Summit recently. Change doesn't happen overnight, but give it five years, or even less, and healthcare's going to be a different animal. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) is driving a lot of change, but that isn't the only factor. (Also, more and more people don't want to get sick, the nerve of them.) Healthcare systems are jockeying to be bigger, better healthcare providers, and more efficient, too. Real estate pros who understand these goals will flourish along with the healthcare industry. The devil, of course, is in getting the details right. Swinerton Builders Healthcare VP Jerry Mejia moderated the owner/developer panel; Swinerton's an employee-owned GC with expertise in healthcare construction, operating throughout the Western states.
