Opus Bank’s Healthcare Banking division has funded more than $500 million in loans on commitments of over $550 million to healthcare providers and practitioners since the division’s formation in May 2013.

“Achieving over a half a billion dollars of loan fundings within three years is a tremendous accomplishment, of which my team and I are very proud,” said Donika Schnell, senior managing director of Healthcare Banking. “Having launched the division in 2013, we’ve grown it from just an idea to now a nationwide team of Healthcare Banking experts at every level throughout the division. Our team is keenly committed to backing those healthcare providers, practices and businesses looking for a financial partner who truly understands their business and related challenges.

“We’re particularly pleased with the reception we’re receiving in the market and the momentum of our growth, with nearly half of the $500 million representing transactions that we’ve funded in the past 12 months.”

Opus’ Healthcare Banking division focuses on providing relationship-based senior debt financing and customized banking solutions to meet the particular needs of healthcare practices, providers, professionals and sponsors. Opus’ Healthcare Banking financing programs focus on cash flow loans for acquisitions and refinancing, asset-based healthcare loans, healthcare-related real estate debt financing, working capital lines of credit, bridge loans and syndication of multi-lender facilities.

Gordon, founding chairman, CEO and president of Opus Bank. “As a result, Opus has filled a void in the market, making Opus a leading ‘go to’ bank in the healthcare sector.”
