March 3, 2022 — ASCs Inc. is pleased to announce the closing of a real estate sale-leaseback transaction for the Alaska Eye Surgery Center and Laser Center and Alaska Lasik & Cataract Center located in downtown Anchorage, Alaska. The condominium units are located within the Ann Stevens Building, aka the American Red Cross of Alaska building.
The Alaska Eye Surgery Center is considered among Alaska’s most modern health care facilities. The Alaska Lasik & Cataract Center has been leading the way in innovation and technology in the state for over 20 years.
The real estate was sold under a long-term absolute NNN master lease. The master lease allows the tenant to have future flexibility for its many business entities and separate business lines within the building.
“By creating an exceptional marketing package and introducing the opportunity to a large number of real estate buyers on a regional and national level, we were able to create a competitive bidding process that enabled the physician-owners to get maximum value for the real estate, which ultimately was purchased by a private investor located over 4,000 miles away,” states broker Jason Winokur, EVP of JH Winokur, Inc.
Many ASC owners are considering the sale-leaseback of their ASC real estate to provide liquidity, diversify their assets or simply to take advantage of the high premium prices medical real estate buyers are paying for quality medical buildings under long-term leases.
