Anchor Health Properties Executes on Significant Growth Plans in 2016

Since its merger with Brinkman Management & Development in November 2015, Anchor Health Properties has executed  on a significant growth trajectory as it expands its footprint of development, acquisitions, property management, and leasing of healthcare facilities across a national footprint.  With a current staff of 31 professionals across six offices, Anchor has quickly grown into a major national player in the healthcare real estate sector. 

When Anchor Health Properties completed its merger, the firm’s real estate acquisition platform was in its infancy.  The addition of James A. Schmid, III, formerly of CNL Healthcare Properties and HCP, as Chief Investment Officer in April, 2016, propelled Anchor to successfully launch its healthcare real estate efforts across the United States. Anchor’s capital for new investments and developments comes from both a significant programmatic joint venture with The Carlyle Group, a global alternative asset manager, and also from a recently launched discretionary healthcare acquisitions fund with Chestnut Healthcare Partners, LP, co-managed with Chestnut Real Estate.  The fund will have its first closing this month and grow over time to approximately $50M of equity after its final closing next year.  

“We are excited to partner with Ben and James and the entire Anchor Health team in the medical office sector.  After the merger of Brinkman and Anchor and the addition of James, we see Anchor as a strong partner for Carlyle,” remarks Zachary Crowe, Principal of The Carlyle Group.

Since the beginning of the third quarter, Anchor Health Properties has closed over $130,000,000 in six new healthcare real estate investments across five states across the US.  

“I am honored to have joined Anchor Health Properties as a principal” says James Schmid, Anchor Health Properties’ CIO. “The character, integrity, and commitment to service of the firm and its’ platforms are values that I hold dear.  I am proud of the firm’s growth achievements this year across all of our business units and look forward to our team achieving many years of success together.”   

Anchor’s recent acquisition progress complements the firm’s traditional focus on the development and management of healthcare real estate.  Anchor manages approximately 2 million square feet of healthcare real estate and is overseeing the development of several hundred thousand square feet of new facilities, including, the recently opened 70,000 square-foot pediatric specialty care center in Deptford, New Jersey for Nemours duPont Pediatrics, which has been awarded the 2016 Healthcare Facilities’ Symposium Distinction Award for User-Centered Design.  Anchor was also recognized this month by Healthcare Real Estate Insights (HREI) for a best-in-class development project in the Philadelphia metro area with Penn Medicine.     

“Our investments platform is off to a tremendous start.  We are very pleased with our investments, as well as their complementary effect on our development and property management platforms” says Ben Ochs, Anchor Health Properties’ CEO.  “The depth and breadth of our team, experience and full-service offerings in healthcare real estate enable us to serve health systems and providers in a way that is unmatched in the industry.”

To facilitate this recent growth, a number of key employees have been added to Anchor Health Properties.  Anchor Health Properties has five offices located in Wilmington, DE, Charlottesville, VA, Nashville and Knoxville, TN, and Washington, DC.
