Blueprint Sells In Ohio and Florida

Blueprint Healthcare Real Estate Advisors has been anything but a wallflower this year in seniors housing and care deal making and continued their 2018 haul with two more transactions announced at the start of NIC. First, in Dayton, Ohio, Connor Doherty and Michael Segal sold an 87-bed skilled nursing facility that came with a lot of upside. Situated in a desirable, urban infill location adjacent to a local medical center, the facility maintained a five-star rating from CMS. Pretty good.
