NorthStar Healthcare is focused on making investments in the needs-driven senior housing sector, which we define as independent living, assisted living, memory care and skilled nursing facilities.
We believe this sector is an attractive asset class to invest in as these types of facilities generally provide the broadest level of services to residents in a more cost-effective setting.
Capitalize on Strong Demand for Healthcare Financing. We expect that demand for capital in healthcare real estate will exceed supply for the period in which we are investing the net proceeds of our offering. Traditional lending sources, such as banks and insurance companies, have recently adopted more conservative lending policies and have made fewer new lending commitments to owners of healthcare properties.
