Leaseback of Leading Brazilian Hospital 
TORONTO, Dec. 27, 2012 /CNW/ - NorthWest International Healthcare Properties 
Real Estate Investment Trust (TSXV: MOB.UN) (the "REIT") announced today the 
acquisition of Hospital e Maternedade Brasil ("HMB") located in suburban Sao 
Paulo, Brazil from Rede D'Or São Luiz S.A. ("Rede D'Or") for approximately 
C$120.0 million.  Concurrent with the sale, Rede D'Or entered into a fully 
net 25 year leaseback of the property with an initial annual rent of 
approximately C$12.3 million, representing a 10.25% intial cap rate, plus 
annual inflation adjustments. 
The acquisition represents the REIT's second investment in Brazil and 
solidifies its position as a leading owner of healthcare real estate in the 
country and is immediately accretive. Adjusting for the acquisition, the 
REIT's weighted average occupancy and lease term have increased to 99.4% and 
13.6 years, respectively, reinforcing the defensive nature of its portfolio. 
In addition, post acquisition, approximately 99% of the REIT's rental revenue 
will be indexed to inflation, adding to its organic growth prospects. 
At approximately 342,000 square feet and with 305 beds, HMB is the largest 
full-service hospital in Santo Andre, a suburb of Sao Paulo, located 
approximately 30 km south of the city centre. HMB is operated by Rede D'Or, 
a privately owned Brazilian hospital operator with 26 hospitals across the 
country and a dominant presence in Rio de Janeiro under the "D'Or" hospitals 
brand; São Paulo under the "São Luiz" brand and Brasilia under the "Santa 
Lucia" brand. Rede D'Or is the largest network of private hospitals in Brazil 
and is widely regarded as one of the fastest growing, and leading hospital 
operators in the country. 
The gross purchase price of C$120.0M includes C$24.0M of deferred 
consideration, which is due in one year. The REIT's investment was funded 
from existing resources and new mortgage financing from BTG Pactual Bank for 
C$60.0M at an interest rate of 6.80% plus annual inflation for a two year 
term. The acquisition closed earlier today, contemporaneously with the 
signing of definitive agreements and is subject to customary post-closing
