Grubb & Ellis Healthcare REIT II Acquires Medical Office Building Near Denver and Pediatric Specialty Hospital Near Los Angeles
SANTA ANA, Calif., April 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Grubb & Ellis Healthcare REIT II, Inc. today announced that it has acquired St. Anthony North Medical Office Building, a 60,000-square-foot multi-tenant medical facility on the campus of St. Anthony North Hospital in the Denver suburb of Westminster. In a separate transaction, the REIT announced that it has also acquired Loma Linda Pediatric Specialty Hospital, a 34,000-square-foot pediatric care center in the Los Angeles suburb of Loma Linda.
Built in 2008 on the campus of the 138-bed St. Anthony North Hospital at 8501 Bryant St., the three-story St. Anthony North Medical Office Building is a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Gold certified building, a designation of the United States Green Building Council that ranks buildings on the level of sustainability attained in design and construction. The Class A medical office building is 88.5 percent leased to multiple tenants, including St. Anthony North Hospital and Panorama Orthopedics and Spine Center, which lease nearly 74 percent of the building in the aggregate.
Loma Linda Pediatric Specialty Hospital, located less than three miles from 900-bed Loma Linda University Medical Center, consists of a multi-building portfolio that includes three operational facilities: a 56-bed sub-acute pediatric and adolescent nursing facility, a 15-bed intermediate care facility for developmentally disabled children and a 37-child licensed pediatric day school and preschool that includes enrollment of children with special medical needs. Mountain View Child Care, Inc., the sole tenant and operator of the facility, recently executed a long-term lease that expires in 2026.
“Both of these acquisitions appealed to us for similar reasons,” said Danny Prosky, president and chief operating officer of Grubb & Ellis Healthcare REIT II. “They are both affiliated with top-tier health systems, located on the campus or in proximity to thriving medical centers, and are financially healthy assets that are supportive of our investor distribution.”
St. Anthony North Medical Office Building was acquired from SAN MOB I, LLC, an unaffiliated third party represented by James Turpin of Centum Health Properties. Grubb & Ellis Healthcare REIT II financed the acquisition using cash proceeds received from its offering.
Loma Linda Pediatric Specialty Hospital was acquired from D&J Holdings, LLC, an unaffiliated third party represented by Kevin Roy of Healthcare Finance Partners and Eric Weissman of London & Pacific Capital Advisors, LLC. The REIT financed the acquisition using $8.7 million in borrowings under its line of credit with Bank of America, N.A. and cash proceeds received from its offering.
As of March 25, 2011, Grubb & Ellis Healthcare REIT II has sold approximately 20,673,802 shares of its common stock, excluding the shares issued under it distribution reinvestment plan, for approximately $206,251,000 through its initial public offering, which began at the end of the third quarter of 2009.
To date, the REIT has made 16 geographically diverse acquisitions comprised of 30 buildings valued at approximately $231 million, based on purchase price in the aggregate.
