Our Experience at Work
Real Estate & Land Use Legal Services for Healthcare Industry
Our attorneys regularly counsel large healthcare networks and smaller specialized practices on land use and real estate matters. With experience and knowledge about the myriad of issues healthcare clients are likely to face, we’ve helped our clients with purchase and sale transactions, running the gamut from buying raw land for development to acquiring medical office buildings, clinics and hospitals. We also advise clients on various leasing arrangements—including ground leases for construction of facilities, leases for neighborhood urgent care clinics and leases to individual practitioners—as well as siting and zoning analysis related to hospitals, urgent care clinics, and free-standing emergency departments.
In June 2017, our client MultiCare Health System, acquired two hospitals and an extensive network of clinics in and around Spokane, Washington. The transaction made MultiCare the largest community-based, locally governed healthcare system in the state of Washington. HCMP advised MultiCare on all real property aspects of this transaction ‑ starting with early negotiations of the purchase agreement, through extensive due diligence efforts, and finally culminating with the closing of the $425 million purchase.
