Yuma Regional Medical Center Expands Emergency and Specialty Care to the Foothills

Yuma Regional Medical Center (YRMC) set out to expand access to healthcare care services in the Foothills of Yuma Arizona and partnered with MedCraft to develop a new health campus.

MedCraft provided the capital, planning and programming expertise, physician alignment, full-service development and oversight of the project from concept through completion.

The new 58,000-square-foot, two-story facility offers multiple new and expanded services, and is purposefully designed to create an environment where patients can receive a full complement of services in one location. Foothills and East County residents now have immediate access to emergency medicine, full-service imaging, lab, pharmacy, and multi-specialty care.

We remain committed partners to YRMC and are proud to share this project and showcase the power of partnership, excellence, and unwavering dedication to not only our client but the communities we serve.

To provide you with firsthand insights into the power of partnership, excellence, and unwavering dedication – we invite you to hear directly from Trudie Milner, Chief Operating Officer, where she shares her thoughts on what this new facility means to YRMC and collaboration with MedCraft.

MedCraft Investment Partners Marks 2022 YTD Milestones

· MedCraft Investment Partners have closed more than $300M in acquisitions
· National presence expanded by 640,000+ additional square feet in 10 states
· On track to meet investment goal of $500M by end of 2023

MINNEAPOLIS, November 8, 2022 – MedCraft Healthcare Real Estate, a full-service
healthcare real estate firm specializing in the financing, delivery, and management of
healthcare facilities, has announced that its investment and capital platform, MedCraft
Investment Partners, has closed on over $300 million in acquisitions consisting of 20
healthcare projects since its inception 15 months ago. Cumulatively, these projects
further expand MedCraft’s national presence spanning more than 640,000 square feet
in 10 states, making MedCraft Investment Partners well on pace to achieve its goal of
investing $500 million by the end of next year.

Seismic Shifts in Healthcare Delivery Models

This milestone further validates the industry trend of increasing investment into
healthcare real estate due to its relative stability and resistance to economic downturns.
As healthcare delivery continues to shift out of hospitals and into ambulatory and other
non-traditional environments, the need for new facilities will only continue to grow.
The American Hospital Association expects seismic shifts in the outpatient care
landscape over the next decade. Forecasts in patient volume changes include a 25%
increase in ambulatory surgery centers and a 19% increase in office-based diagnostics,
laboratory testing and imaging. MedCraft is uniquely positioned to further capitalize on
this trend because of its deep healthcare knowledge and experience, extensive provider
relationships, and proven track record.
“Investing and managing healthcare facilities requires a group of professionals who
understand healthcare real estate and the needs of providers,” said Jon Lewin,
Principal, MedCraft Investment Partners. “That’s what truly makes us different. Our
team focuses on the needs of our healthcare clients and delivers real estate investment
and management solutions that accomplish their long-term goals. It may sound simple,
but getting there requires creativity, flexibility, and tenacity.”

Patient and Provider-Focused Solutions

As evidence of this, MedCraft Investment Partners acquired several significant projects
as long-term holders and partners across the healthcare sector including:

Macomb Professional Building, Detroit Michigan Acquisition
MedCraft Investment Partners recently acquired a medical office building near the
campus of one of its national health system partners in Detroit, Michigan and is making
a significant investment into building systems to improve its functionality as a healthcare
facility and capital for new healthcare programs in the building.

South Bend Orthopaedics, South Bend, Indiana
South Bend Orthopaedics Medical Office Building and Allied Physicians Surgery Center
were owned by the physicians of South Bend Orthopaedics. Recognizing that owning
their real estate was an added burden and expense, they partnered with MedCraft to
acquire their building which provided a capital infusion into the practice and allowed the
physicians more time to focus on their patients.
“As South Bend Orthopaedics continues to build on our tradition of excellence and
providing exceptional patient care, we recognize that owning all of our real estate
comes with an added expense and burden” stated Adelbert Mencias, MD, Physician
President, South Bend Orthopaedics. “By selling our South Bend location to MedCraft,
it allows us to free-up our capital and infuse it back into our operations and equipment
so that we can continue to provide state-of-the-art care to our patients, in a costeffective
outpatient setting. We chose MedCraft because of their expertise and
partnership approach. MedCraft is different, they do what they say they are going to do.”

MedCraft recently completed development of the Rincon Surgery Center in partnership with Tucson Health and its physician investors. The new state-of-the-art 17,000 square-foot ambulatory surgery center houses four operating rooms with expansion capabilities for an additional two operating rooms in the future. “Providing high-quality, accessible surgical care to our patients has been a driving force behind bringing this facility to fruition,” said Dr. Derrick Johnston, chairman of the board and pediatric urologist. “Through this joint venture, we can enhance our ability to provide same-day surgical services and perform increasingly more complicated procedures in an outpatient setting, which benefits our patients with significant cost savings and increased convenience and comfort.”

Healthcare Providers Blueprint to Retail Site Selection

As healthcare leaders gathered from across the country at the ASHE PDC Conference, MedCraft, alongside partners Yale New Haven Health (YNHH) and SLAM presented on Adaptive Reuse of Retail for Healthcare and we want to share key takeaways and our case study featuring the strategic advisory services MedCraft provided to YNHH as they sought to expand ambulatory care services in a key market.

With vacant retail space at an all-time high, there is one growing trend that could pose a win-win for all: the adaptive re-use of big-box retail for medical use, to deliver healthcare closer to home while simultaneously addressing vacancies plaguing the retail landscape. As consumers shift where they prefer to receive non-emergent care, healthcare providers are becoming increasingly interested in locations at the hub of where people live and shop.

Learn how MedCraft guided a premier health system through the process to determine if the adaptive reuse of retail for space healthcare was the right solution for them. Learn how our comprehensive analysis of potential locations, the evaluation of how well the buildings and sites could support Yale New Haven Health Systems proposed programs from a cost, constructability, and functionality perspective; and if this solution may be the right one for you.
