Re: Post-Effective Amendment No. 1 to Registration Statement on Form S-3


Ladies and Gentlemen:


We have acted as special counsel to Global Medical REIT Inc., a Maryland corporation (the “Company”), in connection with the Post-Effective Amendment No. 1 to Registration Statement on Form S-3 (Registration No. 333-276248) (as amended, the “Registration Statement”) of the Company filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) on the date hereof pursuant to the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), in connection with the registration of (i) shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share, of the Company (the “Common Stock”), (ii) shares of preferred stock, par value $0.001 per share, of the Company (the “Preferred Stock”), and (iii) debt securities of the Company (the “Debt Securities,” and, together with the Common Stock and the Preferred Stock, the “Offered Securities”), having an aggregate maximum offering price of $750,000,000. All capitalized terms that are not defined herein have the meanings assigned to them in the Registration Statement.


The Debt Securities will be issued pursuant to one or more indentures between the Company and trustees yet to be named in the form of the Indenture filed as Exhibit 4.5 to the Registration Statement (collectively, the “Indentures”).


As special counsel for the Company, in addition to participating in the preparation of the Registration Statement, we have examined the following documents:


(a)    the Registration Statement, including the form of Indenture filed as Exhibit 4.5 to the Registration Statement;


(b)    the resolutions adopted by the Board of Directors of the Company (the “Board”) relating to, among other things, the preparation and filing of the Registration Statement and the due authorization of the Offered Securities, certified on the date hereof by an officer of the Company; and


(c)    an executed copy of the certificate of the Secretary of the Company, dated the date hereof, as to certain factual matters.

For purposes of the opinion expressed below, we have assumed (i) the authenticity of all documents submitted to us as originals, (ii) the conformity to the originals of all documents submitted as certified or photostatic copies and the authenticity of the originals thereof, (iii) the legal capacity of natural persons, (iv) the genuineness of all signatures and (v) the due authorization, execution and delivery of all documents by all parties and the validity and binding effect and, with the exception of the Indentures, enforceability thereof upon the Company. We have also assumed that at the time of execution, authentication, issuance and delivery of the Debt Securities, the Indentures will be valid and legally binding obligations of the applicable trustees thereunder.


As to factual matters, we have relied upon representations included in certificates of officers of the Company and in certificates of public officials.


Based upon the foregoing and such other information and documents as we have considered necessary for the purposes hereof, we are of the opinion that:


1.    With respect to the Debt Securities, when (a) the applicable Indenture relating to the Debt Securities has been duly authorized and validly executed and delivered by the Company, (b) the terms of the Debt Securities and their issuance and sale have been duly established in conformity with the applicable Indenture so as not to violate any applicable law or result in a default under or breach of any agreement or instrument binding upon the Company, if applicable, and so as to comply with any requirement or restriction imposed by any court or governmental body having jurisdiction over the Company, if applicable, and (c) the Debt Securities have been duly executed, authenticated in accordance with the applicable Indenture and issued and sold as contemplated by the Registration Statement, the prospectus contained therein and any applicable prospectus supplement, and if (i) all the foregoing actions are taken pursuant to the authority granted by the Board, or a duly authorized committee thereof, and (ii) the Company has received full payment therefor in accordance with the authorization of the Board, or a duly authorized committee thereof, then the Debt Securities will constitute binding obligations of the Company, enforceable against the Company in accordance with the terms of such Debt Securities, except as the enforceability thereof may be limited or otherwise affected by bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium, fraudulent transfer and other laws affecting the rights of creditors generally and principles of equity, whether considered at law or equity.


In expressing the opinion set forth above, we have assumed that (i) the applicable trustee will have been qualified under the Trust Indenture Act of 1939, as amended, and a Statement of Eligibility of the Trustee on Form T-1 will have been properly filed with the Commission and (ii) each of the applicable Debt Securities and Indentures will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York.


We do not purport to express an opinion on any laws other than the laws of the State of New York.
