Healthcare Bill Could Equal 60,000,000 new MOB SF

The historic healthcare bill signed into law this week is going to have a significant impact on commercial real estate, whether specifically intended or not. There is going to be a lot of discussion on what that impact will be as the months and years roll by. Co-Star has an article on the bill's impact, and at one point quotes an industry player that the bill could ultimately lead to 60,000,000 more feet of MOB based on the number of new patients entering the rolls of the insured. On the flip side, the bill contains strong prohibitions on physician-owned hospitals, which will have a significant impact on current and future developments and currently existing hospitals.
