     SCOTTSDALE, ARIZ.  (August 10, 2021) – ORION Investment Real Estate is pleased to announce it has expanded its healthcare division with the formation of M|T Healthcare Partners, founded by Marina Hammersmith, CCIM and Tyrel Williams, CPM®.

M|T Healthcare Partners is a full-service healthcare real estate practice specializing in tenant/buyer representation, medical practice expansion strategy, landlord leasing/sales representation, and property repositioning for medical use.

The partnership was formed out of an alignment of purpose. Hammersmith and Williams say they founded M|T Healthcare Partners on a common foundation of care. Upon that foundation they are building their practice with pillars of relationships, specialized expertise, and responsiveness. The breadth of their experience brings a wealth of knowledge and perspective to every client.

“ORION provided a platform of support to realize my vision as a healthcare real estate expert, and Tyrel brought drive and passion to our practice,” said Hammersmith, who noted there were a few key elements she was looking for as she contemplated forming a partnership at ORION.

“I chose to partner with Tyrel because of his poise, grace, and ethics. I felt he was a continuation of my character, someone I could trust to create a cohesive, seamless experience for our clients,” Hammersmith said.

Arizona’s underserved healthcare market and rapid population growth are driving a significant need for innovative ways to deliver healthcare to its communities. M|T Healthcare Partners works side-by-side with clinicians and the healthcare community finding ways to support these efforts by bringing together people, and place.

Driven by a passion for their work and a desire to make a difference, M|T Healthcare Partners is committed to devoting their collective experience and efforts to seamlessly deliver value for every client.

“I chose to partner with Marina because over the years I’ve witnessed her dedication to her work, clients, and the people and causes in her care,” Williams said. “She truly puts the needs of others ahead of her own, keeps her word, genuinely cares, and steps-up when a job needs to be done. It’s been rare in my experience to find people who aligned so closely with my values. I’m honored be her partner.”

Hammersmith possesses more than 25 years of experience in healthcare real estate. She has represented more than 2 MSF in healthcare real estate throughout her career and has worked with such clients as Lillibridge Health Services, NexCore Group, LaSalle Investments and HonorHealth. Prior to their merger with John C. Lincoln, Hammersmith was Scottsdale Healthcare’s exclusive broker for all their on-campus medical office buildings for over five years.

Williams joined ORION earlier this year. He brings more than 15 years of real estate knowledge and experience to the team, with a broad background and education in commercial property and asset management, including leasing, construction and risk management. Williams began his career on the Baylor Healthcare account with CBRE in Dallas, Texas, where he gained experience in every aspect of healthcare real estate.
