CIT Healthcare Agents $136MM Facility for CommuniCare

CIT’s Healthcare Finance business closed a $136.9 million senior secured credit facility for CommuniCare Health Services, a privately held company headquartered in Cincinnati, OH.

The credit facility is comprised of a $121.9 million real estate term loan and a $15 million revolving asset-based line of credit.

CommuniCare, a post-acute care provider currently operating 73 facilities in seven states, used the real estate term loan to finance the acquisition of 10 skilled nursing facilities. The revolving line of credit provided the company with ongoing working capital financing. CIT served as the administrative agent on the senior credit facilities.

“We’ve closed a number of real estate loans over the years, but closing with CIT has been one of the easiest,” said Charlie Stoltz, CommuniCare chief financial officer. “We greatly appreciated CIT’s expertise and assistance in bringing this financing to a successful closing.”

“We worked closely with CommuniCare throughout the financing process to better understand their needs and priorities, which enabled us to develop a creative financing solution that fully supported their goals for this transaction,” said William Douglass, managing director and group head of CIT’s Healthcare Finance business.
