Sanders Trust
In 1992, Robert Rosenthal published an article in Healthcare Financial Management regarding the financing and ownership of medical office buildings. Rosenthal writes “It was not until the beginning of the twentieth century that physicians began to locate their offices above a bank or retail store or, in larger cities, in multi-use office buildings. By the beginning of World War II, a number of specialized buildings had been erected exclusively for use by physicians -- including some on hospital campuses.”
Sanders Trust
Much has changed since those early days, including the healthcare institution’s strategic plan. Today healthcare providers rely on their ability to successfully and efficiently deploy their limited resources. At The Sanders Trust we understand that healthcare executives are more carefully evaluating cash reserves and utilization of debt capacity and seek to create a partnership benefiting both the hospital and physician tenants.
