Evolution of Health Care and its Impact on the Real Estate Landscape in the United States | Avison Young

Almost two-thirds of all community hospitals are in urban areas. Since 2010, 80 rural hospitals, most of which are in states with the nation’s highest poverty rates, have closed down due to lack of funding. The gap between the haves and the have-nots is expected to change as health care providers deal with their real estate. One of the changes the report predicts is that medical firms will become more like retailers, with their decisions being influenced by metrics such as traffic counts and competition.
