We invest in the delivery of health care
Learn how we put our expertise to work for you.
Through smart health care real estate investments, DOC aims to produce reliable dividends and total shareholder returns.
Our strategy is based on earning the trust of physicians, hospitals, and other health care providers by helping them serve their patients, partners, payers, and communities with innovative and sustainable health care facilities and increased access to capital. That way, our partners can increase the quality of their care while lowering costs. We believe our collective experience and expertise in health care real estate and health care differentiate us in the market and that our focus on the physician, provider, and their services to their patients helps us to accomplish the following goals:
Partner with physicians, hospitals, and other providers to acquire and build a high-quality portfolio of health care real estate assets.
Currently, we are concentrating on stabilized medical office, physician group practice clinics, outpatient care, ambulatory surgery centers, specialized hospitals, rehabilitation facilities, and small specialized long-term acute care hospitals. These investments are diversified in geography and tenant mix, as we have partnered with many physicians, hospitals, and other providers across the United States. While our current strategy is to focus on the medical office building sector, we may, over time, opportunistically diversify into other health care real estate asset classes. We also prefer to acquire health care facilities that meet our acquisition criteria rather than develop new facilities.
Maintain a conservative balance sheet that is built for success in both good and bad economic environments.
We intend to balance our equity and debt capital tools to optimize our cost of capital with our long-term investment goals and return on investment capital. Our disciplined approach keeps debt levels consistent with or lower than our public health care REIT peers and maintains our investment-grade rating. This approach serves our investors well in times of growth and when capital is scarce for our competitors.
Deliver best-in-class total shareholder returns.
By targeting top-quality investments and partnering with our physician and health system tenants to help increase the quality and profitability of their care, we strive to create a portfolio of properties that will deliver increasing cash flows over time. And through appropriate management of the REIT and capital structure, we seek to translate this portfolio performance into outsized total returns for our shareholders.
