Mountain Ash will also expand PHP’s portfolio to 485 assets with a value of just under £2.4bn and a contracted rent roll of around £127mln.
"We are delighted to announce this transaction, one of a number of development projects the Group is pursuing at present and which can be funded with the proceeds of our recent successful £100mln placing”, said Harry Hyman, PHP’s managing director.
“We have a strong pipeline of opportunities in the UK and Ireland and are well-positioned to continue to grow our portfolio and to support the healthcare systems in these markets through the provision of modern, primary care infrastructure", he added.
Analysts at Liberum, which rate PHP at ‘hold’ with a 130p target price, said they expected the company’s portfolio to benefit from “long-term structural growth, driven by a growing and ageing UK population coupled with efforts to improve the efficiency and cost effectiveness of the NHS by expanding the scope of services provided by GPs”.
In mid-morning trading on Monday, PHP shares were 0.1% lower at 141.9p.
