“These transactions underscore National’s commitment to investing in highly competitive, diverse markets that seek to generate long-term, healthy returns for our clients,” said Jeffrey Kanne, President and CEO of National. “We are thrilled to be able to acquire these portfolios of medical office properties alongside an experienced and talented operational partner such as Catalyst.

The Portfolios consist of 40 properties totaling 1.2 million square feet spanning 13 states including: Alabama, Arkansas, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Massachusetts, North Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia. The Portfolios are 92% leased and 88% of the total leased space is comprised of health systems and regional physician groups.

“These transactions further Catalyst’s commitment to building on meaningful relationships within healthcare,” said Chad Henderson, Founder and CEO, of Catalyst. “We are thankful that National values the significance of our partnership approach. Our joint venture strives to positively impact healthcare delivery by investing strategic capital with a partnership like mentality. The closing of the Portfolios was a significant first step for our joint venture and paves the way for the future of Catalyst,” said Henderson.

The partnership will enable Catalyst to continue expanding its portfolio of medical office buildings throughout the United States and allow National to further its mission to deliver solid, long-term returns on investment for clients while making communities more connected, sustainable, and vibrant.
