Healthcare Activos Buys Nursing Home In Barcelona

2 August 2017 – Expansión 

Healthcare Activos is pushing ahead with the construction of a portfolio of buildings to be used as hospitals and nursing homes for the elderly. The investment vehicle led by Jorge Guarner (pictured above) – former CEO at SARquavitae– and Oaktree Capital has just acquired a nursing home in Barcelona for €16 million, which until now belonged to a Goldman Sachs fund.

It is the Los Tilos nursing home, located in the neighbourhood of Gracia, and it has a surface area of 16,000 m2 – 7,000 m2 allocated to parking – and 258 beds. The facilities, located in a very sought-after area, are managed by Grupo Bastón de Oro and residents pay between €2,200 and €2,500 per month to live there.

Financing

Healthcare Activos has financed 60% of the operation through a loan granted by CaixaBank. The nursing home formed part of a package of assets that Goldman Sachs purchased at the beginning of 2015, through B Capital Partners, from the Barcelona-based property developer La Llave de Oro, in a deal worth €90 million that included 18 buildings. The fund owned by Guarner and Oaktree has invested €62 million since December on the purchase of seven healthcare assets, containing 1,263 beds, across Spain.
