Strawberry Fields’s $4M Pickup in Illinois

Strawberry Fields REIT last week announced the $4 million purchase of Hope Creek Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, a 245-bed facility in East Moline, Ill.

The South Bend, Ind.-based Strawberry Fields leased the property to a firm consulted by Infinity Healthcare Consultants.

“The property was county-owned and they were looking to have a private operator take over,” Strawberry Fields CEO Moshe Gubin said in a statement. “We were very pleased to be selected to acquire the property and were chosen due to our solid reputation as a quality owner of skilled nursing properties in Illinois, leased to tenants with successful track records.”

Hope Creek was built in 2007, making it the newest such facility in the greater Quad Cities area — which spans the Iowa-Illinois border — according to Strawberry Fields.
