Flagler Healthcare Investments, a Miami-headquartered property company focused on the acquisition, development and management of U.S. healthcare properties, is rebranding and repositioning as SPHERE (Strategic Public Health Equities and Real Estate).
According to the company, the SPHERE brand will reflect a broadening of its mission to encompass a “dual objective of expanding its real estate investments and engaging in strategic equity participation in companies, operations and technologies – all with the collective goal of fostering healthy, sustainable, and thriving communities.” To achieve this goal, SPHERE’s real estate footprint will now widen to encompass inpatient and outpatient centers, senior living facilities, care and recovery hotels, workforce and student housing, educational facilities, research and innovation labs, and community health and sustainability assets.
Furthermore, the company plans new capital infusions in equity participation that will focus on other sectors including as food and agriculture, transportation, environmental sustainability, healthcare and life sciences.
“I am proud of our track record, which provides a strong foundation for our broader, holistic approach with SPHERE,” said founding partner, president and CEO Didier Choukroun. “This natural pivot is a strategic move to deepen our impact on public health, serving as a vanguard of a larger movement where health-focused real estate and private equity are no longer just about building and returns.”
