Medical tenants have become increasingly critical to the retail sector, creating a new opportunity for landlords who have grappled with e-commerce and bankrupt retail chains. New Jersey is no exception, and the opportunity comes as urgent care centers, physical therapists and other businesses experience rapid growth spurred by major changes in the health care industry.
