H2C CLIENT TRANSACTIONS
H2C Secures Operators for Two Behavioral Health Hospitals
NEW YORK – H2C Securities Inc. (“H2C”), a healthcare-focused strategic advisory firm, served as the exclusive advisor to FJM Health and Senior Services (“FJM”), to secure alternative operators for two recently-developed inpatient psychiatric hospitals located in Prescott, AZ and Kennewick, WA.
Executive Director Matthew Tarpley and Vice President Michael Fioravanti led the transactions for H2C.
The Prescott, AZ facility, completed in 2019, features 14 patient rooms with 24 beds, an onsite pharmacy, group and seclusion rooms and expansion potential to a 40-bed facility given the zoning envelope. Formerly operated as “Medical Behavioral Hospital of Northern Arizona”, the new operator will continue inpatient behavioral services by providing psychiatric treatment and structured supportive care to clients coping with mental and behavioral health challenges. Centered between Yavapai Regional Medical Center West and the Northern Arizona VA Hospital, the facility will be the 12th location for the tenant.
The Kennewick, WA facility, completed in 2020, will be expanded over the next 12-24 months to accommodate a 72-bed inpatient behavioral hospital. Given the restrictive CON in the State of Washington, the Tri-Cities area has significant demand for psychiatric health and a significant “unmet bed demand.” The facility possesses a unique characteristic in which it does not feature a maximum length of stay for patients, a rare provision of use which the tenant will be able to capitalize on. The strategic location is centered between three acute-care hospitals located within a 10-mile drive and will act as a natural-referral sources for the tenant.
“There is clear demand for inpatient psychiatric care throughout the country and we were able to align FJM with two proven operators in the space to achieve an optimal outcome,” said Matthew Tarpley. “The facilities are vital to the surrounding communities, and we would expect the reach of the operators to grow as the stigma surrounding mental illness continues to shrink,” said Michael Fioravanti.
Notably, the transactions represent the tenth behavioral health deal executed between H2C’s real estate and M&A team – over the past 24 months.
