Ahwatukee Foothills Health Center is part of a 671,811 SF medical office portfolio that NexCore Group and its capital partner Heitman LLC acquired in October 2013. The portfolio contains 13 medical office buildings—eight in southern California and five in Arizona around the Phoenix metropolitan area. Dignity Health, the fifth-largest hospital system in the nation, occupies approximately 33 percent of the portfolio. Nine of the buildings in the portfolio reside on the campuses of Dignity Health hospitals, making them strategic real estate for the health system.
The medical office portfolio is generally located in high-growth markets with a strong payer mix and high demand for medical procedures. Seventy-seven (77) percent of the portfolio is located in markets whose population growth over the next five years is expected to be above the national average, with markets for five of the properties seeing double-digit population growth.
Ahwatukee Foothills Health Center is a 46,239 SF medical office building located in Phoenix, AZ. Dignity Health leases the majority of the first floor for urgent care. Additional specialties in the building include internal medicine, otolaryngology, pediatrics, family medicine, dermatology, and a pharmacy. The building is situated on E. Chandler Boulevard, the main thoroughfare connecting the Health Center to I-10 and the rest of the Phoenix area.
"This is a significant portfolio investment, and the resulting buyer was going to be one of Dignity Health’s largest real estate managers. It was important to select a buyer with extensive experience and expertise in managing physician office space. NexCore’s comprehensive approach to medical asset ownership will undoubtedly benefit Dignity Health and enhance the system’s delivery of outpatient clinical services."
