Our Story

Anchor Health Properties, a firm that for more than 25 years has been devoted exclusively to the development of medical facilities, actually evolved from a retail development company – an evolution that had much to do with our becoming a very different kind of healthcare development company, and leader in the industry.

The founders of Anchor Health Properties, Lou Sachs and Paula Crowley, began their development careers at the Rouse Company of Columbia, Maryland, an organization nationally recognized for its landmark retail centers, such as Faneuil Hall Marketplace in Boston and Harborplace in Baltimore, as well as many other innovative urban and suburban retail development across the country.

After leaving Rouse, Mr. Sachs and Ms. Crowley formed the firm which has become Anchor Health Properties – a company based in the tradition of retail customer service. Our development process incorporates many of the principles that are basic to the creation of a successful retail center. Our strategic approach to navigating highly competitive healthcare markets, and our full understanding of brand awareness and service line integration reflect on our days in retail development.

In 2015 Anchor Health Properties merged with Brinkman Management & Development, a company also focused solely on development and management in the healthcare market.  Brinkman Management and Development has been developing real estate for four decades.  When Brinkman, under the leadership of Ben Ochs, merged with Anchor Health Properties, Ben was named as the new Chief Executive Officer of the combined organizations. 

The merger created a significant geographical footprint across the Eastern half of the U.S. for Anchor to meet the needs of the healthcare marketplace.  The merger also further strengthened Anchor’s full-service platform with a breadth of experience in all facets of healthcare real estate, from ground-up development, management, leasing, and funding to investment and disposition.

With our now expanded leadership, along with a team of highly experienced professionals, we are better positioned to adapt the ever-changing challenges facing the healthcare field.  We continue to lead the industry with our unique solutions to complex problems by utilizing our creativity, flexibility, and nimble approach to remain ahead of the curve and find new ways to address the changing healthcare landscape.
