SPECIAL STATEMENT REGARDING COVID-19
As we prepare to go to print with our 2019 Annual Report, I want to address the coronavirus as it stands today, April 6, 2020. The pandemic known officially as COVID-19 has hit the world hard and fast. By the time you get this annual report, many of you will have been infected or know someone who has been.
MPT’s investment thesis has always been that the world needs hospitals. Hospitals are at the top of the delivery chain for healthcare around the globe. I feel such gratitude to the doctors, nurses, administrators and others working in our almost 400 hospitals around the world to provide care and comfort to those infected with the virus and others who need healthcare during these trying times. We thank you all from the bottom of our hearts, and we are forever grateful for the care given by our hundreds of hospitals.
God bless us all, and may all of humanity come together as one to overcome this pandemic.
