Kicking off the second day of the event, Murray W. Wolf, Publisher of Minneapolis-based Healthcare Real Estate Insights™ magazine, will moderate an expert panel titled “State of the Market: Is Today’s Boom Market for Healthcare & Medical Office Real Estate Built to Last?” The panel is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 27.

“We have seen many significant changes in the healthcare real estate space in recent years, including an increase in consumer-oriented medical office buildings, new sources of capital and a growth in large M&A deals,” Mr. Wolf says. “Our panel at the InterFace Conference will help attendees understand the immediate and potential impact of these changes. We will also be addressing several of the other hottest topics in the HRE sector.”

Some of those include:
■ The Jan. 1, 2019, elimination of the individual mandate penalty from the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA); rising interest rates for tax-exempt bonds; mergers and acquisitions (M&As); the convergence of payers and providers; and other healthcare industry fundamentals and how they are affecting HRE
■ The capital market environment and how that is affecting development and investment deal flow in the HRE space
■ The increase in the number of medical office building (MOB) portfolios being placed on the market this year, the reasons for that, who is selling and who is buying, monetizations, portfolio premiums, capitalization rates, cost of capital and more
■ The market dynamics for HRE development and the product types that are currently in or out of favor, such as MOBs, micro hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, rehabilitation hospitals, behavioral health centers and more

“We have some significant opportunities and challenges to discuss, so I can’t wait to hear what our panel of experts has to say,” Mr. Wolf says. “It should be a compelling and informative session.”
