Central, Kentucky – January 9th, 2023 – Crown MedRealty Partners (“CROWN“), a premier healthcare real estate firm headquartered in Kansas City, Missouri, is pleased to announce its recent acquisition of a four (4) property ophthalmology portfolio. Located in the Central Kentucky, the ophthalmology portfolio was acquired via a physician owned, off-market, sale-leaseback transaction with Kentucky Eye Institute (“KEI”). KEI is the region’s recognized and preferred eye care practice dedicated to providing World-Class comprehensive eye care solutions. The highly qualified and dedicated staff at KEI specializes in Cataract surgery, LASIK, Retina Services, Glaucoma Services, Oculoplastic, Ocular Surface Diseases, Refractive Errors, and Optical Solutions.

Located in the cities of Lexington, Morehead, Corbin, and Maysville, Kentucky, the 100% occupied ophthalmology portfolio consists of 31,360 square-feet.

“We are thrilled to close out a strong 2022 with this acquisition and be able to empower KEI in their mission to provide high-quality eye care solutions to the Central Kentucky community,” said Steve Bessenbacher, Chief Operating Officer & Managing Partner of Crown MedRealty Partners. “Over the past year, we at Crown MedRealty Partners have been fortunate to acquire a diverse portfolio of medical office buildings, including properties in multiple states across the country,” said Steve Bessenbacher, Chief Operating Officer & Managing Partner of Crown MedRealty Partners. “These acquisitions have allowed us to expand our reach and serve a greater number of healthcare systems and physician partners. We are committed to supporting the growth and success of our partners, and we are grateful for the opportunity to do so through these strategic acquisitions.”

As the final addition to Crown MedRealty Partners’ portfolio in 2022, the acquisition of the Kentucky Eye Institute portfolio caps off what has become another monumental year of growth for the young firm. In only its second year since the rebranding of the healthcare real estate investment company, Crown completed over $100 million in healthcare real estate transactions, adding twenty-one (21) properties and over 300,000+ square feet to their managed portfolio.
