A Birmingham, Alabama-based real estate investment trust that binges on medical sites picked up Hialeah Hospital for $133.7 million.

An affiliate of Dallas-based Tenet Healthcare is the seller of the 378-bed medical facility at 651 East 25th Street in Hialeah, records show.

The purchase completes Medical Properties Trust’s play for a South Florida medical portfolio totaling $900 million. Including Hialeah Hospital, MPT has acquired five hospital properties and medical office buildings previously owned by Tenet.

MPT has a leaseback agreement with Dallas-based Steward Healthcare System involving Hialeah Hospital, Palmetto General Hospital in Hialeah, Coral Gables Hospital in Coral Gables, North Shore Medical Center near North Miami, and Florida Medical Center in Lauderdale Lakes. Steward paid Tenet $1.1 billion for the hospitals’ operations and associated physician practices, according to a news release. MPT bought the real estate that will be leased to Steward.

In recent weeks, MPT paid $315 million for Palmetto General, an adjacent garage and physicians’ offices; the North Shore and Coral Gables sites for a combined $276 million; and Florida Medical, along with three office buildings and a medical office mall for $171 million. The sellers of the properties in Lauderdale Lakes are a consortium that included Tenet, Scottsdale, Arizona-based Healthcare Trust of America, and Dallas-based Altera Development Company.

In a statement prior to the transactions, MPT CEO Edward K. Aldag Jr. said the Tenet properties are “essential community hospitals in areas with positive demographic trends at a very attractive yield.”

MPT specializes in hospital and medical office investments, holding $22.3 billion in assets, mostly in the U.S., but also properties in Europe and Australia, according to its website.

Tenet, which is also publicly traded, still owns ambulatory facilities in Miami-Dade and Broward, as well as the 493-bed Delray Medical Center in Delray Beach that underwent a $79.4 million expansion.
