Cap Rates and Other Unanswered Questions About Healthcare Real Estate
There has been a narrowing of the gap between cap rates of various healthcare property types. World capital markets and the lack of available products are driving this change. Institutional investors have moved towards real estate and see medical real estate as a stable alternative.

Physician Office Leases and Investment in Healthcare Real Estate
When institutional investors consider real estate, they traditionally see healthcare real estate as a stable alternative. In the recent past, they could assume an 80% renewal rate from doctors in medical office buildings, but that has changed. Most of what healthcare property developers are designing and building today is targeted for a single tenant with multiple specialties and departments.

Repurposed Buildings: One-Stop Shopping Locations For Patients
Remember when, if your doctor suggested that you make an appointment with a specialist to further test you for high blood pressure and possible related issues, he expected you to find your own cardiologist? Have you noticed lately that when your primary care physician wants you to have more specialized testing done, he refers you directly to a specific doctor or group?

Private Practice vs. Hospital Employee: How Doctors' Decisions Affect Real Estate
Things have changed for physicians since the “good ol’ days” of just a few years ago. Their income has been greatly affected by reduced reimbursements by Medicare, Medicaid and insurance companies. The Affordable Care Act is putting the spotlight on return on investment (ROI) by scrutinizing costs while increasing care for patients, and doctors are discovering they will be penalized if they don’t purchase software and equipment in order to convert to new electronic health records.

Healthcare in your neighborhood: Now more convenient that ever for patients
There are many trends in the healthcare real estate industry, but one of the more obvious ones is the new convenience factor for patients. If you are in a mid-size to large city, you have probably noticed all sorts of medical-care options popping up in your neighborhoods, at major intersections, along well-traveled streets and even in your favorite department store or drug store.

Our team


Beth Young

Senior Vice President | Houston
Houston

I am a real estate advisor to health systems, private and institutional investors in addition to tenants and users of medical facilities. I specialize in dispositions, acquisitions, marketing, asset valuation, contract negotiations and leases of medical and investment properties.

Prior to joining Colliers International | Houston, I was Vice President of the Investment Services Group of the former Grubb & Ellis Company where I specialized in the sale of investment properties including office, medical, retail and industrial buildings and was a member of the Healthcare Practice Group. From 1996 to 2002, I served as Vice President of Corporate Services for The Staubach Company, now JLL.

In my career I have served in numerous executive positions on the Boards of the Houston/Gulf Coast Chapter of CCIM, the National Board of the CCIM Institute, CREW, CoreNet Global, and the Greater Houston Women’s Chamber of Commerce. In 2002, I was the first female to be elected President of the Houston/Gulf Coast Chapter of CCIM. In 2003, I was presented with the Presidents’ Cup Award, the international award for outstanding achievement and leadership by a chapter president. In 2003 and 2004, I was elected Regional Vice President of CCIM’s Region Four, which covers Texas, Louisiana and Oklahoma.

Since 2011, I have served as a Director of the Greater Houston Women’s Chamber of Commerce. I am the Chairman of the Women’s Health Network of the Texas Medical Center and have been recognized and presented with many awards including the Chamber’s Volunteer of the Year, President’s Key Supporter Award and the first Role Model Award. I am a Trustee and Assistant Secretary on the Harris County Hospital District Foundation Board and am Chairman of the Small Grants Committee. In addition to being an industry speaker at conferences, I regularly write healthcare property articles that have been published by GlobeSt.com, Knowledge Leader, Houston Medical Journal, Texas Real Estate Business, REDNews, Commercial Investment Real Estate magazine for the CCIM Institute, CREW White Papers, Houston Chronicle and the RCA Report for the National Association of Realtors.

I am also involved with local and national charities serving on the boards of the American Heart Association and the War Against Drugs.

In 2015, I received the Certificate of Congressional Recognition when I was honored at the 29th Annual YWCA Outstanding Women’s Luncheon.

Bart Morey

Senior Vice President | Houston
Houston

I earned my Bachelor and Masters Degrees in Civil Engineering from Rice University in Houston, Texas. Since earning my graduate degree in 1980 I have worked as a Project Manager on projects across the United States. I am unusual in that I have worked for both the contractor and the owner on projects throughout my career, thus, resulting in a unique perspective and skill set that few people have. During my tenure in commercial general contracting, I have been directly responsible for approximately 6.5 million square feet of commercial projects totaling over $355 million. While working on the Owner’s side I have directed some $228 million worth of projects encompassing over 4,400,000 square feet.  

My success is based on result oriented management and supervision. Understanding the design and construction process from the different parties’ perspectives translates into savings in time and money for the end user. Working with Owners and Tenants has afforded me a truly unique viewpoint of the essential requirements to the project and the ability to translate that vision. Close administration and analysis of the design, procurement and construction process is essential to delivering projects on schedule, under budget, and with no surprises.  Consultants need to commit to a timely delivery schedule and their product has to meet clearly defined stages of development. Contractors need to have a clear understanding of what is expected of them. I have learned that adherence to these fundamentals is the key to a successful project. I look forward to applying my project management skills to your advantage.
