REITs predict even more growth for health care real estate
Cafaro predicts even more growth for health care real estate. The nation’s demographics and coming changes to its health care delivery system bode well for health care real estate, Ventas CEO Debra A. Cafaro said in comments at the 16th Annual REIT Symposium sponsored by NYU’s Schack Institute of Real Estate. She cited medical offices and outpatient facilities in illustrating her point. “Because they are need-based, healthcare and senior housing assets performed the best of any real estate asset class during the recession,” she added.
