Why Healthcare Real Estate?

CV Mission Critical REIT believes the healthcare industry will remain one of the largest and fastest-growing industries in the United States. Despite the most severe economic downturn in decades, the percentage of our GDP spent on healthcare in 2009 jumped to 17.3% from 16.2% in 2008, which represents the largest one-year increase since 1960.* With the introduction of comprehensive healthcare reform in 2010 – which is expected to add millions of newly insured individuals to the healthcare system the industry is poised for even more growth which should translate into greater demand for a broad range of healthcare facilities.
