Healthcare Trust of America (NYSE: HTA), is the largest dedicated owner and operator of medical office buildings (MOBs) in the U.S., with a focus in 20 to 25 key markets. We provide infrastructure for the integrated delivery of healthcare services in highly desirable locations. Our in-house property management and leasing platform has strategically placed regional offices, allowing us to efficiently manage our medical office buildings and serve approximately 2,000 tenants.
Over the last decade, we have invested $4.0 billion primarily in MOBs and other healthcare assets comprising 17.0 million square feet. Our targeted key markets have superior healthcare demographics–economically affluent populations, leading universities, health systems and national employers looking for well-educated workers. These dynamics support strong, long-term demand for MOBs. We have, and continue to achieve, critical mass by expanding our presence, within these key markets.
Founded in 2006, and listed on the New York Stock Exchange in June 2012, HTA was the first company that did not issue equity in conjunction with its NYSE listing. This demonstrates our commitment to creating shareholder value and prudently allocating capital. Since our inception, we have delivered, on average, over 10% total return to our shareholders, significantly outperforming the S&P 500 and US REIT indices.
