Excerpting from the discussion:
The healthcare facilities sector has rebounded well following the most recent recession. An improving economy and rising consumer spending, coupled with favorable healthcare dynamics have greatly benefited the healthcare facilities sector. Healthcare facilities do face some headwinds, however, with healthcare reform implementing new payment models, presenting facilities with the challenge of adapting to a new reimbursement regime.
