Health-care act could be good Rx for commercial real estate – Pensions & Investments

Demand for commercial real estate for medical and senior-care space is expected to increase as the federal health care law is implemented, potentially benefiting real estate investment trusts, according to a study recently released by LaSalle Investment Management.

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) will turn the health care into a growth sector that real estate investors cannot ignore. Starting next year, ACA is expected to extend health-care services to 30 million to 50 million more people, greatly increasing demand for medical office space and medical facilities, as well as certain types of senior housing and care facilities.

The BioDistrict is poised to become a hub for the growth of the healthcare sector because of the development of new facilities and existing capacity within the local healthcare industry.
