JLL Expands Healthcare Capital Markets Platform

Steven Leathers joins firm’s New York office as Senior Vice President

NEW YORK, May 28, 2014 – The implementation of the Affordable Care Act is driving investors across the spectrum to pursue a whole host of healthcare-related real estate.  The surge of buyer interest has lead JLL’s Capital Markets to add another expert to its healthcare team’s roster.  Today, the firm announced that Steven Leathers has joined as a Senior Vice President, based in New York. Working under the direction of Managing Director Mindy Berman, Leathers will focus on the valuation and sale of healthcare properties, maximizing their value for clients.

“The interest in healthcare-related real estate is greater than we’ve ever seen before– medical office buildings, outpatient facilities and rehabilitation centers are top of mind to the investment community,” said Berman. “Steven’s experience on the investment side of the market will bring fresh, smart insight to the team.”
Leathers joins JLL from nationally focused healthcare REIT American Realty Capital Healthcare Trust, where he was responsible for property acquisitions and transaction management. He earned his M.B.A and a Masters of Architecture from the University of Illinois.
