NEW YORK, May 17, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Lument announced the closing of a $ 35.6 million United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Community Facilities (CF) loan to fund the construction of the Care Rehabilitation and Wellness Services Center, a 240-bed skilled nursing (SNF) facility. Situated in Bellefonte, Pennsylvania, the new SNF will replace an existing 240-bed facility that was deemed unsuitable for major renovations due to its age and location.
Miles kingston, Principal at Lument, worked with Complete Healthcare Resources Eastern (CHRE) to develop and execute the fundraising strategy. CHRE is an experienced management company that has been managing and operating the Care Center since 2013, and currently operates 20 facilities in Pennsylvania and Maryland with nearly 4,000 beds at all levels of acuity.
The first step in the process was to organize the financing of the construction through a $ 35.6 million First National Bank bridging loan. Once construction was completed, Lument facilitated the closure of the $ 35.6 million USDA CF direct loan to repay construction finance and install a permanent debt structure with a low fixed interest rate and a term of 36 years.
âCHRE has been working on this strategy for several years and we were delighted to work with them to bring this deal across the finish line,â said Lument’s Kingston. âMost importantly, the residents of Center Care are now able to reside in a state-of-the-art community that truly meets their needs and is a huge improvement over the previous facility.
âWe couldn’t be more excited to bring our residents into Center Care’s new and improved community,â said Todd wagner, vice-president, financial management and business development at CHRE. âStaff and residents showed patience and courage as they endured the challenges of COVID in the old building. Now they are able to move into a brand new facility and overall things seem to be moving in a positive direction. enjoy the restaurant style dining experience in their new home. “
