Montecito Medical, an owner of medical office properties through the U.S., has acquired a facility housing a histology lab in Bedford, Texas.

The property offers 16,328 square feet and is 100% leased to Texas Digestive Disease Consultants, a professional association of 230 board-certified gastroenterologists. The group is a part of GI Alliance, a network of gastroenterology experts.

The acquisition is an extension of a portfolio of medical office properties in the greater Dallas area that Montecito is in the process of purchasing.

“Texas is the fastest growing state, and Dallas-Fort Worth is the nation’s fastest growing metro area, so it makes sense that we are growing our company’s presence here,” said Chip Conk, CEO of Montecito Medical.

“We are delighted by the opportunity not only to acquire a newly renovated asset like this but also to partner with one of the foremost gastroenterology groups in the country,” said Bryan Brown, senior vice president of acquisitions at Montecito Medical.
