CARR Healthcare Realty is the nation’s leading provider of commercial real estate services for healthcare tenants and buyers. Hundreds of practices trust CARR every year with their real estate decisions. We are experts at helping practices maximize their profitability through real estate; while also leveling the playing field against landlords and sellers. Our services include start-ups, lease renewals, expansions, relocations, additional offices, building purchases and practice acquisitions.
At CARR we only represent healthcare tenants and buyers. We never represent landlords or sellers which allows us to avoid conflicts of interest commonly presented by listing companies. Our commitment to representing only healthcare tenants and buyers allows us to advocate for our clients’ specific needs and save them a substantial amount of time and money, while avoiding costly pitfalls and gaining peace of mind.
These services are always free to clients. In both residential and commercial real estate, the industry standard is for landlords and sellers to pay commissions to both their agent as well as the buyer’s or tenant’s agent. Commissions are being paid out regardless, so it is in the best interest of the doctor to put that money to good use and have their own representation.
BENEFIT: About 80% of healthcare professionals are paying above market rents so whether your lease expires next month or in 7 years, CHR will help determine a plan of action. We will monitor your lease renewal date to help prevent you from being at a disadvantage in your next renewal negotiation. As a benefit to OCMA members, Carr Healthcare Realty will review your current lease at no cost providing market evaluation, lease analysis, purchase vs lease evaluation, and negotiation strategies. This vital information is key to managing the 2nd highest expense in any medical practice and making key decisions that have a direct impact on profitability.

MDitate, Your Prescription for Peace
Located in Newport Beach, CA, MDitate is the first commercial, secular meditation studio in Orange County. The studio has made meditation techniques accessible for anyone to conveniently recharge, rest, and find more balance in life. And the founder is a physician.
After experiencing the all-too-common symptoms of burnout, Adam M. Rotunda, M.D., a fellowship-trained Mohs skin cancer surgeon in Newport Beach, CA, and Assistant Clinical Professor of Dermatology at the University of California, Irvine, ventured on a silent, 10-day, meditation retreat. He has since felt compelled to share the benefits that he personally experienced with his students, colleagues, patients, and community.
Meditation’s effects are validated by numerous peer-reviewed studies: reduced anxiety, more patience, better focus, improved sleep, and more compassion. Brain imaging studies have shown that it literally reduces the amygdala (the “fear center” that controls the fight or flight response) and it increases pre-frontal cortex functioning, which regulates self-control and attention. Discover more benefits at https://mditate.com/science.
The studio offers 40 weekly classes within a beautiful space. In addition to guided meditation, Qi Gong (a form of Tai Chi), and yoga nidra (deep rest) classes, MDitate offers sound bath workshops and silent retreats. MDitate plans to feature distinguished guest speakers and continuing medical education conferences.
Benefit: OCMA members receive a 20% discount on monthly membership and class packages. Additionally, this benefit will be extended to their patients if they’re referred directly by the OCMA physician.
