Healthcare Finance

Our healthcare clients have turned to us for representation in more than $16.5 billion in transactions over the past five years. Our familiarity with the trends and the participants in this industry allows us to understand the lending market and to provide a sophisticated, practical and cost-conscious approach to healthcare finance transactions. We know that these transactions require a greater level of experiences and industry-specific knowledge than simple extensions of credit to unregulated borrowers.

Having represented both borrowers and lenders in taxable and tax-exempt healthcare financing transactions, we understand both sides of the table and are able to focus on the unique aspects each deal. Coupling our finance experience with our firm’s nationally-recognized healthcare practice, we provide an interdisciplinary and coordinated approach to matters involving healthcare finance.

Across the nation, we represent owners and operators of hospitals, senior living facilities, ambulatory surgical centers and a wide range of other healthcare service providers — public, private and nonprofit — in connection with their credit facilities, acquisition financing, project financing, construction financing, bond issues and other financing needs.

We have particular experience dealing with loans involving specialty lenders such as healthcare REITs and other lenders who only finance healthcare companies, as well as senior housing financing from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac for our senior living clients.

We also routinely advise on joint ventures, bankruptcy-remote special purpose entities and other borrower structures that bring additional layers of complexity to financing transactions.

We represent borrowers and lenders nationwide in a variety of healthcare loans and other financing transactions, including:

  • Asset-based loans
  • Asset securitizations
  • Letters of credit
  • Syndicated credit facilities
  • Interest rate swaps
  • Tax exempt financing
  • Equipment financing
  • Equipment leasing
  • Real estate and construction loans
  • Project financings and sale-leaseback transactions
