Christopher Thames, senior vice president and chief operating officer at J.H. Berry & Gilbert, recently was featured by NAIOP, a leading real estate organization, in an authored article highlighting what medical clients should prioritize when identifying an office lease.
In the piece, Thames highlights the Urban Land Institute’s projection that medical office space demand will increase by 19% in 2019, a trend that is spurred by an aging population and recent legislation expanding access to healthcare. Thames writes that clients in the market for healthcare office space should consider who their neighbors will be, what medical infrastructure exists in the facility and the importance of carefully analyzing lease nuances.
“We are pleased to see a leading real estate organization recognize Christopher for his commitment to an expert level of industry knowledge that helps our clients achieve their visions and goals,” said Philip Currie, president at J.H. Berry. “Christopher’s experience and client-first approach adds value to our clients and team, and we look forward to his continued contributions to healthcare real estate.”
