Marcus & Millichap Closes Sale of Two Southern California Medical Office Buildings


SAN DIEGO, CA – Marcus & Millichap Real Estate Investment Services, the nation’s largest real estate investment services firm, has arranged the sale of a two-property, three-building, medical office building portfolio.

The properties are Bellwood General Hospital Medical Center (top left photo), a 36,827-square foot off-campus medical office building located in Bellflower, Calif., and the on-campus La Palma Medical Buildings, 5451 La Palma Ave. and  5471 La Palma Ave., which together total 58,812 square feet and are located in La Palma, Calif.

The terms of the sale were not disclosed.        

John Smelter (lower left photo), a first vice president investments in Marcus & Millichap’s San Diego office, represented the seller, La Palma Medical Buildings LLC and Bellwood Medical Building LLC. The buyer was Positive Investments Inc.

 “The Bellwood General Hospital Medical Center serves the Bellflower, Buena Park, Cerritos and Lakewood communities from its ideal location along Artesia Boulevard,” says Smelter. “The La Palma Medical Buildings are stable medical office properties in an improving city with a strong physician referral pattern.”

“Major property owners and lenders continue to show favor for on-campus medical buildings, but off -campus buildings will become ever more attractive as health systems and other providers respond to patient demands for greater convenience and readily accessible care,” Smelter adds.

The Bellwood General Hospital Medical Center is located at 10230 Artesia Blvd. in Bellflower, a growing Los Angeles suburb with a current population of 76,616. The center’s major tenants are Bellwood Medical Pharmacy, Pioneer Medical Group, Mid-Cities IPA and Quest Diagnostics.
