We take a look at the latest announcement from Centuria Healthcare, a subsidiary of Centuria Capital, below.

What did Centuria Healthcare announce to the market this morning?

Centuria’s shares are moving today. This comes in light of the company reporting that its Healthcare subsidiary has partnered with a joint venture (JV) to deliver a new private hospital. Furthermore, the $64 million short-stay facility will be developed in Kew, Melbourne.

The JV consists of 42 specialist doctors along with Medibank. Centuria Healthcare reported it will also own the asset. In addition, the company reports that the JV has committed to a 15-year lease term.

Comments from the managing director

On the partnership, Andrew Hemming, Centuria Healthcare managing director, said:

We are delighted to partner with the joint venture doctors and Medibank to develop and own the real estate delivering this new short-stay surgical facility. This is a transformative project that can change the landscape of the healthcare sector and we are pleased to be the real estate partner of this forward-thinking project.

Hemming also added that the project aligns with Centuria Healthcare’s strategy “to partner with top-tier operators backed by secure lease covenants”.

Centuria Healthcare currently has around $1 billion of modern healthcare real estate assets across Australia.

However, the new hospital development remains subject to obtaining the standard licensing and planning approvals.
