PHOENIX, ARIZ. (May 8, 2019) – Healthcare trends currently are a hot topic. How these trends impact the commercial real estate industry is an even hotter topic.

AZCREW, the leading organization for senior-level executive women in the Metro Phoenix commercial real estate field, will examine medical real estate trends at its May luncheon. The event is May 21 at the Phoenix Country Club, 2901 N. 7th St.

May’s speakers include Julie A. Johnson, Principal, Avison Young; Randy McGrane, Managing Director and CEO, Ensemble; and Sonja Nelson, Chief Strategy Officer, Abrazo West Campus.

With today’s healthcare focus on patient wellness and care satisfaction – as well as providing delivery efficiencies including convenient and easily accessible locations – healthcare providers have had to take the initiative of being proactive and making it easier for the patients to get treatment. Developers of healthcare facilities have also had to adjust to this shifting real estate strategy.

“That’s when the shift started towards providing healthcare that is not focused on making the hospital the center of the universe,” Johnson says. “There is a lot of real estate involved.”

AZCREW’s May lunch begins with networking at 11:30 a.m. The program starts at noon. Member registration is $45; non-member pre-registration is $65. Lunch is included. Registration ends May 16. Register here.
