Urgent Care Centers Latest Prescription For Hospital Growth
Miami Today | By: Yudislaidy Fernandez
This year, the driving force increasing demand for medical office space is going to come from a shift from in-patient to outpatient care, said Kenneth Weston, president and CEO of Kenneth Weston & Associates.
Mr. Weston, whose firm specializes in medical office properties, said the demand for this type of real estate is coming partially from health professionals seeing the benefits of setting their practices in urban areas.
“You have so many people working and living downtown, there was actually lack of medical space and lack of health care services provided there,” he said.
Overall, this trend toward outpatient facilities is expected to continue to grow as more patients adapt to getting faster medical care closer to home.
