Best REIT - Healthcare Facilities Dividend Stocks

Healthcare REITs own and operate properties including hospitals, senior housing facilities, skilled nursing facilities, and other medical office buildings. Like all REITs, these firms are not subject to federal income tax so long as they distribute 90% of their taxable income to shareholders. As such, these stocks tend to offer dividend yields well above the wider market average.
