pancare regional healthcare center 760x320

A new $30 million centrally-located health center will meet the need of thousands of uninsured people by bringing primary and specialty medical services on an income-based sliding scale.

Nonprofit health care organization PanCare of Florida, Inc. will break ground on the PanCare Regional Healthcare Center within the next 45 days. To be located on the block of 15th Street and Sherman Avenue across from the Bay County Fairgrounds, the center will create 100 new jobs during the next five years of the build out.

“It’s a huge project for Bay County and for this entire region,” said PanCare Marketing Coordinator Ashley Kelley. “It means that people have access to affordable specialty care and be able to go beyond their primary care services.”

She said, as in the name, the center will be beacon for the region, particularly for the surrounding rural communities and individuals who are uninsured or using Medicaid and Medicare.

“There’s really nothing like this in Northwest Florida,” she said.

The multi-building medical complex will have a state-of-the-art women’s health center offering gynecology and mammography services, a full-service pharmacy and a laboratory.

Other services will include physical and infusion therapy, gastroenterology, cardiology, radiology and ophthalmology. In addition to a walk-in clinic, the campus will include a building that will serve as a special needs shelter, with onsite medical providers, in the event of a natural disaster.

Kelley said the property was purchased before Hurricane Michael with plans to build the health care complex and that the organization is currently looking ahead to vamping its fundraising to fully fund the $30 million project.

Oasis at Coral Reef Aerial Rendering 760x320

Owner and operator of senior living facilities Royal Senior Care has secured $41.9 million in construction financing for the development of a 217,123-square-foot, luxury senior living facility in Miami.

The healthcare group of the commercial bank, BHI, arranged the financing on behalf of the borrower, Royal Senior Care. BHI provided $31.9 million in financing for the project and Coastal States Bank has provided $10 million in financing.

The facility, Oasis at Coral Reef, will comprise three buildings situated on an 8.7-acre campus. Located adjacent to Jackson South Medical Center, the facility will offer 201 catered living, assisted living and memory care units, as well as a restaurant-style dining, boutique hotel décor and various luxury amenities.

The project is currently under development.

The financing represents BHI’s second transaction on behalf of Royal Senior Care. In 2018, the commercial bank arranged refinancing for Royal Senior Care’s Oakmonte of Davie senior housing facility in Davie, FL.

“BHI has proven to be a highly supportive partner over the years,” states Sean Kanov, managing director of Royal Senior Care. “BHI’s healthcare team is expert in the intricacies of the senior living sector and understands our business. We are very pleased to collaborate with them again.”


“Although 2020 was a challenge for many senior living, assisted living and memory care operators, BHI believes in the outlook and demographics of the business,” says Tami Antebi, first VP and head of BHI Healthcare. “We continue to support our clients and provide financing in the sector. Royal Senior Care has a keen understanding of the market. Its communities with their exceptional amenities offer great appeal for residents.”


“BHI aims to build long-term relationships with clients by becoming acquainted with their business objectives and providing tailored financial solutions to meet them,” says Steven Caligor, EVP and division executive of structured finance group at BHI. “Royal Senior Care has a substantial track record of success in the Florida senior care industry.  We look forward to continuing our productive partnership going forward.”

Medical offices have been a bright spot for real estate investors during the pandemic, despite the fact that telehealth saw a boom during the pandemic.

Doctors and medical professionals have remained on time with their rent payments in the past year, unlike other office tenants, the Wall Street Journal reported. While some tenants have paid less than 85 percent of rent collections, medical professionals have paid 95 percent of rent owed.

And despite in-person visits falling 60 percent early on in the pandemic, telemedicine appointments accounted for just over 8 percent of visits in December, indicating that patients are going back to offices.

Property owners have continued investing in the field. While sales volume for all commercial real estate dropped 32 percent in 2020 compared to the year prior, $11.2 billion worth of medical office buildings were purchased in 2020. That’s only slightly below the $12 billion worth of properties bought in 2019.

Major players are now entering the field. MedCraft Investment Partners launched a $500 million fund in January that will be dedicated to medical office acquisitions. Additionally, Kayne Anderson Real Estate is closing a $2.5 billion fund that will devote half of its fund to medical offices.

construction plans 760x320

The St. Joe Co., Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare Inc. (TMH) and Florida State University College of Medicine have partnered to develop a healthcare campus in Panama City Beach.

The campus’ planned location is on an 87-acre parcel near the intersection of State Highway 79 and Phillip Griffitts Sr. Parkway. The property is planned to be close to the Latitude Margaritaville Watersound community, a 55-and-older community that is planned for 3,500 homes.

Future development plans of the healthcare campus include the construction of an emergency center and 100-bed inpatient facility offering services such as gastroenterology, urology, gynecology, cardiology and general surgery, among others. The parties intend to create a local fiduciary governance structure for the planned campus.

TMH currently serves 17 counties in Florida and Georgia. This would be its first facility in Bay County. The parties intend to break ground on the project as early as 2022.
