Background: This study aimed to compare property development and increasing investment in real estate by the healthcare system organizations in the USA and Europe. Real estate investments have upsurged in healthcare due to the multiple benefits to patients and medical practitioners. Methods: The approach of acquiring data was through secondary sources and online questionnaires. The researchers applied inclusion and exclusion criteria by exclusively including the articles published after 2014 to ensure the validity and reliability of the information. Results: A total of 53.33% of the articles reviewed focused on the United States, while 46.67% concentrated on Europe. The development of real estate in healthcare is essential in both regions due to the challenges faced with the current infrastructure. Study Limitation: Currently, there are very few studies concentrating on the research topic. Conclusions: The USA and Europe should focus on increasing real estate investments in healthcare by focusing on hospitals and trusts, rehabilitation centers, and nursing homes. View Full-Text
