Medical Properties Trust Inc. agreed to buy a portfolio of up to 21 healthcare facilities across 15 states from HCP Inc for about $371 million, increasing the number of properties in its portfolio by 75 percent.
The portfolio consists of seven acute care hospitals, three long-term acute care hospitals, five inpatient rehabilitation hospitals and six wellness centers, the company said in a statement.
The health care real estate investment trust plans to fund a portion of the acquisition with proceeds from a public offering of about 11 million common shares.
The company also plans to fund the deal with net proceeds from previously announced purchase and sale transactions with Vibra Healthcare LLC and borrowings under existing credit facilities.
Medical Properties expects to complete the acquisition in stages beginning March 28 through the end of the second quarter of 2008.
