TORONTO, April 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - NorthWest Healthcare Properties Real Estate Investment Trust (TSX: NWH.UN) (the "REIT") announced today that it has completed the previously announced acquisition of Willow Brook Medical Centre, a 34,800 square foot medical office and retail property in Airdrie, Alberta. The purchase is expected to be immediately accretive.
Located just north of Calgary, in the rapidly growing City of Airdrie, Willow Brook Medical Centre (836 1st Avenue NW) is a recently constructed medical office and retail complex that has quickly become a prominent healthcare property in the immediate market.

The purchase price was $14.5 million, subject to adjustments. The property was acquired free and clear of mortgage financing, with the equity being funded from existing resources. NorthWest has entered into a commitment for a six year, $9.55 million mortgage at a fixed interest rate of 3.62% that is expected to fund in the second quarter.
The investment is the REIT's eighth acquisition in Greater Calgary and its thirteenth asset in the Province of Alberta. The REIT believes that the acquisition of Willow Brook Medical Centre further solidifies its market leadership in healthcare real estate in Canada.
