Medical Properties Trust, Inc. bridges the gap between the growing demand for high-quality healthcare and the ability to deliver it cost-effectively. Specializing in acute care, community and rehabilitation hospitals, this healthcare real estate investment trust (REIT) provides operators access to capital for facility improvements, technology upgrades, staff additions and new construction through long-term net leases of real estate assets. By reinvesting non-earning assets into operations, MPT clients are able to participate in the growth of the largest sector of the U.S. economy.

(NYSE: MPW) announced agreements to acquire the real estate of 30 acute care hospital facilities located throughout the United Kingdom for approximately £1.5 billion, or approximately $2.0 billion.

July 22, 2019 – Medical Properties Trust’s commitment to acquire eight private hospitals located throughout England from Secure Income REIT (LSE: SIR) for approximately $434 million brings the company’s total year-to-date investments to a record $3.4 billion.
