This will be a new kind of healthcare real estate event.

With the growing importance of healthcare real estate (HRE), both healthcare executives and HRE professionals have long awaited a reliable, comprehensive property database to aid in their decision-making.

The wait is almost over.

This fall, national healthcare data firm Revista will hold its National Launch & Executive Forum to unveil the first widely available database of medical properties, finally enabling healthcare executives and HRE professionals to make better informed real estate and facilities decisions. The landmark event will be held Nov. 18-19 at the Sheraton Chicago Hotel & Towers in Chicago.

“The Revista National Launch & Executive Forum will be the first healthcare real estate conference to combine the expertise and insights of industry thought leaders with comprehensive local, regional and national property data,” says Elisa Infante Freeman, a principal with Revista. “This will be a new kind of healthcare real estate event, giving healthcare executives and healthcare real estate professionals the opportunity to learn in-person from top experts how to make the most out of property data in their organizations and how to improve their medical real estate strategies.”
