kind in 2014 and the conclusion of the monetization process initially announced in October 2014.
This second phase consisted of the $42 million sale of two properties located on the campus of Community General Osteopathic Hospital, a 200-bed acute care hospital located in a suburb of Harrisburg. The Bloom Medical Office Building is a fully-leased 72,950 square foot medical office building that houses an ambulatory surgery center operated by a joint venture between Pinnacle and physicians, as well as space leased by Pinnacle and physician tenants. The Medical Sciences Pavilion is a newly-built 65,660 square foot, Class A cancer center and outpatient care facility that is fully leased by Pinnacle for a 12-year term. The state-of-the-art facility connects directly to the acute care hospital facility on the campus.
“The team at H2C was technically very strong with respect to these unique transactions...”
William H. Pugh, CFO, Pinnacle
“The favorable pricing obtained in the Pinnacle transaction is a reflection of the market’s strong demand for institutional-quality real estate assets sponsored by a premiere healthcare system such as Pinnacle,” said P.J. Camp, Principal of H2C. “Given these and other attributes, the market-leading result was driven by a highly competitive bidding process for this portfolio.”
In the first phase of the Pinnacle portfolio monetization process led by H2C, five medical office buildings (“MOBs”) and one hospital with a combined total of 645,225 square feet were sold for $132 million. In addition, H2C advised on the sale of an off-campus clinic facility for approximately $1 million earlier in 2014 to a local physician group practice, bringing the total size of the portfolio monetization to $175 million. The transaction represents one of the largest monetizations by a health system in recent years, and with a capitalization rate below 6% for the MOBs, one of the most aggressively priced deals of its kind in 2014.
“The team at H2C was technically very strong with respect to these unique transactions,” said William H. Pugh, CFO of Pinnacle. “They listened to our needs and were very responsive in answering questions and resolving issues. We are very pleased with the results."
