An exclusive panel, "Healthcare Real Estate 2012: The Expanding CRE Spectrum of Hospitals, MOBs, BioScience, Seniors' Housing and Research Facilities Attracts New Investors" will feature Laca Wong Hammond, Head of Healthcare Real Estate - Healthcare Investment Banking, Raymond James | Morgan Keegan; Harden L. Crawford IV, Principal, HLC Realty, LLC; Todd Jensen, Chief Investment Officer, American Realty Capital Healthcare Trust; Max G. Newland, Principal, Fremont Realty Capital and Nicholas J. Scola, Principal, H.I.G. Growth Partners.

The panel will raise important questions, including: How are the myriad of new funds approaching opportunities in medical office buildings, research facilities, hospitals, bioscience and other healthcare-related assets? Who are the active financing sources in this growing real estate space? Where is new MOB development likely to occur in the next one-to-two years? How will healthcare reform mandates continue to change delivery of services? Will reform change demand drivers for the underlying real estate? Is the election year having an impact on investment sales activity? And, how are new funds and "under the radar" investors approaching changes related to healthcare reform and delivery of services?

"In this environment of ACOs and healthcare reform, acquisition appetite for healthcare real estate has broadened beyond medical offices through the continuum of care; property types include acute care facilities, urgent care centers, clinics, and long-term care facilities. We will be discussing investment parameters from a variety of capital sources on June 12th," according to Laca Wong Hammond, Head of Healthcare Real Estate, Raymond James | Morgan Keegan.

Conference sponsors include: Health-Pro Realty Group (HPRG), ProMed Properties and Raymond James | Morgan Keegan.

Healthcare executives from The Suburban Hospital Alliance of New York State, ENT and Allergy Assoc., LLP, Danbury Hospital and Bronx-Lebanon Hospital Center will participate in panel discussions.

"Healthcare reform calls for decreased reimbursements and belt-tightening, but the medical future looks rosy. Every day, more and more baby boomers are needing increased medical services and doctors need space to deliver those services. We will discuss more in depth on the 12th of June this paradox between lower fees and reimbursements but increased quality, competitive space requirements," according to Charles Feitel, Principal, HPRG I Health-Pro Realty Group.
