A lease restructuring with lasting results
Seton, a nonprofit health care system, experienced a 40% increase in rental costs for its headquarters over 10 years. By engaging Centurion – and our acquiring ownership – Seton was able to regain control of its facility, establish preferred lease terms, and ensure long-term ownership.
Savings set into the foundation
Infirmary, a prominent regional hospital in the Southeast, wanted to develop a new comprehensive outpatient care center. For-profit developers couldn’t meet Infirmary’s need to protect liquidity and debt capacity.
Expanded facilities at reduced cost
MultiCare, a large non-profit healthcare provider issued an RFP for their planned expansion, yielding responses from several for-profit national owners of healthcare real estate. In the end, they chose Centurion, another non-profit, to structure a four-building sale-leaseback, offering the lowest rent compared to for-profit options.
