Pat Hicks Firm Sells Properties for $87 Million

HOUSTON – (Realty News Report) – Three inpatient rehabilitation hospitals have been sold for $86.8 million by Hicks Ventures, the Houston-based developer of the properties.

Hicks Ventures developed these three rehabilitation hospitals from 2018 to 2019 after securing 20-year leases. Each hospital offers 42 patient beds, including 12 traumatic brain injury centers.

The Buyers

Birmingham-based Medical Properties Trust, Inc. purchased Cobalt Rehabilitation Hospital of El Paso and Cobalt Rehabilitation Hospital of Louisville in Clarksville, Indiana.

Dallas-based MedProperties purchased the PAM/Cobalt Rehabilitation Hospital of Fargo, N.D.

Hammond Hanlon Camp (H2C) represented Hicks Ventures in the transactions, while  Medical Properties Trust and MedProperties represented themselves.

The three triple-net-leased national inpatient rehabilitation facilities are called IRFs.

“We are seeing a strong market demand for IRFs in the healthcare sector which is evident by our strong pipeline of new projects including a Wisconsin IRF commencing construction later this year, as well as, a Behavioral Health Hospital beginning early 2022,” said Larry Vaile, Director of Healthcare and Principal of Hicks Ventures. “Our healthcare program has a track record of successfully delivering projects with the benefit of a seasoned owner/developer perspective. This coupled with our selection of experienced tenant/hospital operators that provide positive patient outcomes, continues to be a vital component in our projects.”
