Medical office leases differ from standard commercial leases in several respects. There may be development and title issues unique to a medical office building (MOB) because it may be located within a hospital campus and may be subject to medical use restrictions and easements which impact its operation.
The hospital owner often desires to retain fee ownership of an entire medical campus, so the MOB might also be subject to a ground lease. Counsel for the landlord or the tenant will want to see these matters addressed in the agreement.
There are also federal regulations to consider in drafting medical office leases. Medical office leases may be subject to the Stark Law or the Anti-Kickback Statute, which applies to referrals for services payable under federal healthcare programs.
Leases require specified criteria to comply with federal Stark and Anti-Kickback regulations and qualify for an exception and/or safe harbor. MOB leases should also address the obligations of the landlord and the tenant about HIPAA, ADA, and environmental compliance.
Listen as our authoritative panel discusses the development and regulatory issues associated with medical office leases. The panel will review the operational constraints often presented by restrictive covenants, easements, and ground leases impacting MOBs, the best leasing practices for achieving compliance with the Stark Law and the Anti-Kickback Statute, and compliance with HIPAA, ADA, and environmental regulations particular to medical offices.
