“Healthcare real estate has become a prized asset class for investors and developers. On the heels of the recession and with the passage of healthcare reform, growth in medical facilities is expected to be at historically high levels in the coming years to handle the 32 million people who will now have health insurance,” said Jay Koster, Jones Lang LaSalle’s Americas Capital Markets President.  “By appointing Mindy to lead our Healthcare Capital Markets practice, we are ready to serve our clients’ growth in this pivotal sector.”
 
Ms. Berman will act as a Capital Markets liaison to the firm’s recently expanded Healthcare Solutions practice.  Jones Lang LaSalle’s National Healthcare group works with clients throughout the country delivering program management, strategic consulting, financial strategy, and transaction and sustainability advisory services.
 
Ms. Berman has been a Managing Director with the firm’s Corporate Capital Markets practice for the past four years.  In the past 15 years, she has advised and arranged more than $3 billion of healthcare industry real estate property for providers and developers involving sale-leasebacks, developer build-to-suits and synthetic leases of acute care hospitals, medical office buildings, outpatient facilities and senior housing and skilled nursing facilities.  Her experience with healthcare providers also includes medical equipment financing and unsecured private placements.
 
Ms. Berman is well known for her success in marrying debt and equity investors with needed financing solutions for occupiers in real estate.  She earned her B.A. from Brandeis University and her MBA from Boston University.
 
Joining Ms. Berman will be Ken Ferretti, Associate.  Mr. Ferretti has 8 years of experience in real estate, working for the past three years in the Capital Markets group at Jones Lang LaSalle.
