Looking Forward into Healthcare Innovations

January 21, 2021 For Dentists, For Doctors

2020 marked a time of change and adaptation. COVID-19 required healthcare organizations to move quickly to solve a variety of new problems, including a shift towards telehealth, changes to in-person care, and even a reworking of our healthcare spaces. However, these changes have occurred in a healthcare context where marked change was – and is – already underway.

Five Reasons to Review Your Medical Practice Office Lease

The office lease for your medical practice is one of your biggest overheads. Fortunately, although the terms of your contract may seem cut and dry, there’s always room for negotiation. And given the enormous shifts in the market due to COVID-19, you may have more leverage than usual. Here are some of the reasons you might want to review your lease.

Renewing Your Medical Office Lease: How to Get the Most Out of Your Lease Renewal

A commercial lease renewal option is always a good card to have in hand. It gives medical tenants an opportunity to consider where their business stands, and how well the terms of their current rent agreement reflect the current market, and the power to negotiate accordingly. Remember, a lease renewal option is a starting point – it’s not carved in stone. It’s up to you to make it work in your favor.

How Medical Practices Can Benefit from Having a Medical Real Estate Advisor

There are many critical components of a thriving healthcare business. Quality of care, technological innovation, and availability of required services are some that come to mind. Another critical factor is the physical space your medical practice calls home. In fact, your clinic’s address is arguably the most important variable in your success.

Rethinking Your Healthcare Space Post COVID-19

When first faced with COVID-19 in early 2020, doctors sprang into action as they attempted to find new and workable ways of triaging patients, treating the illness, and minimizing its spread. However, in-patient visits plummeted as patients either avoided routine care or opted for telehealth visits instead. This sudden drop in patient load left many clinics rethinking their real estate strategy. Now, some six months later, we have a much better handle on the virus, and in-person visits have largely recovered to their pre-pandemic numbers – although patients still remain wary of exposure.

The Value of Medical Specialists –
in Medicine and in Real Estate

September 15, 2020 Real Estate Insights, The GZ Take

The past few decades have seen the rise of the specialist. Although many fields have seen a shift away from the “jack-of-all-trades” provider towards specialization, it’s especially pronounced in medicine, where specialists and even sub-specialists have become the norm. As a real estate firm focused solely on medical real estate, we see the parallels between what’s happening in medicine and the market shift we’re driving in our own field.
