The intersection of medical offices, surgical centers, and other healthcare-related real estate transactions creates a unique landscape for all parties involved. The creation of various state and federal accreditation and certification standards, Stark and anti-kickback laws, and zoning makes medical space development, acquisitions, and leasing complex. Conroy Baran works with physicians and developers to navigate the regulatory landscape surrounding medical space as well as assisting with facility use planning and deal specific objectives. The firm’s advisory services include real estate due diligence and drafting, as well as negotiating lease and purchase agreements, finance agreements, and development agreements.
