Montecito Medical, a premier owner of medical office properties throughout the U.S., has completed the acquisition of a medical building housing the Pomona Valley Health Center in the Los Angeles suburb of La Verne.
The property, which offers slightly under 40,000 square feet of space, is 100% leased. Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center serves as anchor tenant, occupying 85% of the building’s space. Other tenants include a well-established veterinary clinic and a dental office.
“We are pleased to be able to acquire this well-positioned medical real estate asset and for the repeat opportunity to partner with the respected Pomona Valley Health Center as our tenant,” said Bryan Brown, Senior Vice President of Acquisitions at Montecito Medical.
Pomona Valley Health system, which has more than 500 affiliated physicians, offers satellite facilities in Chino Hills and Claremont in addition to the health center in La Verne. The Pomona Valley Health Center focuses on primary care while also offering physical therapy and imaging services.
La Verne is an affluent community 24 miles east of downtown Los Angeles. The property is conveniently situated along a busy commercial corridor directly off Route 66 and several blocks from Interstate 210 and within three miles of Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center. Roughly 300,000 people live within five miles of the property.
“Over the years, we have completed several successful transactions with Montecito Medical, and we truly value our relationship with their team,” said Clay Corwin, President of StoneCreek Company, developer of the property.
The La Verne acquisition establishes a footprint for Montecito in Southern California. Earlier in 2021 the company added a medical office asset in the Northern California market of Chico to its ownership portfolio.
“Our company began in California, so it’s gratifying for us to build a presence in this state as we continue to see opportunities to help medical office owners make the most of their real estate,” said Chip Conk, CEO of Montecito Medical.
