Anchor Health Properties and BGO Acquire a Newly Constructed 70,000 Square Foot Medical Outpatient Building in Sarasota, Florida

Sarasota, FL [May 8, 2024]Anchor Health Properties (Anchor), a national, full-service healthcare real estate development, management, and investment company focused exclusively on medical facilities, and BGO, a leading global real estate investment management firm, recently closed on an off-market three story, 70,418 square foot best in class medical outpatient building in the dynamic Sarasota, Florida market through a recently launched programmatic acquisitions joint venture.

Ben Ochs, Chief Executive Officer with Anchor Health Properties, noted, “We are pleased to expand our blue chip stable of capital partners to include BGO, one of the largest and most experienced institutional investors in US commercial real estate. This new acquisitions joint venture program with BGO is a testament to the Anchor operating platform and our ability to continue to source creative, off market investment opportunities in a time of challenging capital markets.”

“This acquisition is a testament to the dedication and perseverance of our investments platform as well as our ability to be creative across the capital stack – to lean on relationships with local and regional lenders and turn what many consider a challenging market into an opportunistic one,” shared Elliott Sellers, Senior Vice President, Investments and Partner with Anchor. “As the healthcare delivery model continues to place a greater emphasis on outpatient services, multi-specialty MOBs anchored by an ambulatory surgery center or similar high acuity function are continually in demand as regional providers look to expand their patient base within the communities they serve. We look forward to working with some of the preeminent clinical medical groups in the Sun Coast.”

“With this first joint acquisition, we are excited to commence our partnership with the Anchor Health Properties team and their strong track record of success in the healthcare real estate sector,” shared Kevin Yen, Principal, Investments with BGO. “This acquisition is highly complementary to BGO’s investment approach in seeking high acuity and high-quality outpatient MOBs in affluent and growth-oriented markets.”

Strategically located at 6600 University Parkway East within Lakewood Ranch, one of the largest and fastest growing master planned communities in the country, the facility is less than one mile from Lakewood Ranch Medical Center, a 120 bed hospital operated by Universal Health Services (Moody’s Baa3), and offers close proximity to HCA Florida Sarasota Doctors Hospital, a 155 bed hospital within the HCA Healthcare hospital system (Moody’s Baa3).

Built in 2020, the 100% occupied outpatient facility features a long-term, synergistic tenant ecosystem comprised of prominent local and regional providers, including Manatee Physicians Alliance, the physician arm of the Lakewood Ranch Medical Center; Advanced Surgery Center of Sarasota, a physician owned Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC); Fresenius, the largest provider of dialysis services and products; and, Radiology Regional, one of the largest physician diagnostic imaging providers in the Southeast.

Primary care and multi-specialty outpatient care services offered at this location include family medicine, dialysis services, diagnostic imaging, pediatric radiology, pain management, dentistry, plastic surgery, behavioral health, and neurology, among others. The ASC will be built out in the near term and feature two operating rooms utilized for orthopedic, joint replacement, podiatry, and spine surgery procedures.

“This tremendous opportunity and investment is a result of targeting quality outpatient healthcare assets in key markets where we can add scale and density,” added Rob Rumer, Investments Manager with Anchor. “The attractive Sarasota MSA has a high concentration of hospital campuses, health systems, and private physician groups. Building on this, the facility has a tremendous presence within the Lakewood Ranch community and is the newest medical outpatient building in the submarket. The property is surrounded by amenities such as residential, retail, and commercial office space offering convenience for patients, providers, and visitors.”

JLL provided capital evaluation and advisory services for the asset. Anchor Health Properties will provide go forward asset and property management services to the joint venture for this investment, growing its owned and managed portfolio across the Southeastern US to more than three million square feet.
