GI Partners principal Joyce Chow said: “The Thunderbird Medical Pavilion represents an exceptional opportunity to add value in a well-located MOB asset on a premier hospital campus.

“The strength of the market and property fundamentals are consistent with our goal of investing in MOBs that demonstrate capacity for sustained demand and growth.” 

As part of the latest investment, UDLR is also planning to start a multi-million dollar renovation work to upgrade the acquired facility. 

This will include revamping building exteriors, common areas and tenant suites, as well as investments to improve the building’s operations.

UDLR CEO Robert Milligan said: “The Thunderbird Medical Pavilion is a great building on a terrific hospital campus, and we are excited to upgrade MOB with the latest in energy efficiency while bringing the aesthetics of the buildings and its suites to a level that corresponds with high level of care that Banner and its physicians bring to community daily.”
