Vastgoud Ontwikkeling sells Winschoten Healthcare centre
Vastgoud Ontwikkeling B.V. c.s. has sold a healthcare centre still to be developed in Winschoten to Aedifica Nederland B.V. The healthcare complex will be built on the site of the former technical college at Poststraat 4 and is scheduled for completion in July 2018. The new development will consist of a range of first-line healthcare facilities, 52 non-hospital apartments and 32 hospital care apartments. The sales price was approximately €13 million, with costs included.
Increasing numbers of healthcare institutions are opting to lease property in order to prevent capital being locked up in bricks and mortar.” This enables them to avoid the risks involved in the development, as well as property risks, and focus on providing good healthcare over the longer term. The combination of various healthcare provisions in this building will create excellent synergy between the healthcare operators and effectively respond to the needs of care consumers. As investors increasingly recognise the opportunities offered by this type of property, developments such as that in Winschoten are likely to prove increasingly successful.
The healthcare centre in Winschoten will facilitate multidisciplinary collaboration between different healthcare providers. As care needs change, it is essential for support to be organised as close to the client as possible. The healthcare centre offers professional care close to home, focused on strengthening self-reliance (non-hospital apartments) and nursing in a domestic environment (care apartments). The variety of different first-line disciplines on the ground floor will ensure that the healthcare centre in Winschoten is an all-embracing and future-proof development that contributes to quality of life in the region.
