SANTA ANA, Calif., July 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Grubb & Ellis Healthcare REIT, Inc. today announced the acquisition of Decatur Medical Plaza, a medical office building located in the Atlanta suburb of Decatur, Ga.

Built in 1976 and renovated in 1998 and 2007, the property faces downtown Decatur's main pedestrian thoroughfare.
