While conducting some research today for a client, I came across a survey taken by CBRE U.S. Healthcare Capital Markets Group among real estate investors and developers. A key takeaway revealed that Inpatient Rehabilitation Hospitals saw the largest increase for acquisition criteria for 2018, up 6% over previous year.

Interestingly, we frequently say, hear, and read about outpatient surgery on a regular basis, but as for the use of the word, inpatient, less so. Rather, we simply refer to someone going in for surgery or treatment as being hospitalized.

Naturally, the person being treated typically may be quite impatient being an inpatient, and can’t wait to be discharged and head home. In other words, patients have very little patience when it comes to being in the hospital for an extended period of time.
