Midwest Real Estate Panelists Suggest New Locations for, Innovative Insight into Future Healthcare

  by Megan Headley | May 06, 2017



The healthcare visit of the future was the topic of discussion at the recent at the Midwest Health Care Real Estate 2017 event in Chicago.

While some medical tenants—think medical imaging groups or plastic surgery practices—may start taking up residence in malls or strip centers, the move won’t be right for all medical practices, commented Scott Miller, senior vice president of development at Lillibridge, during a panel presentation at Midwest Health Care Real Estate 2017.

In a review of the session, Medical Office News noted that Scott has found the jury to still be out on whether medical uses for a mall anchor spot is consistent with a first-class shopping center.

The Medical Office News team also summarized the primary care visit of the future: it will involve doctors who can “know all, see all and know what to do before it happens.” This was the takeaway from Jeffrey Hill, senior principal at Minnesota-based management and technology consulting firm Trexin Consulting, who presented with his colleague Jimmy Lee, managing principal at Trexin. The presenters expect wearables to be a significant resource for providing this information in the future.
