Lument arranged $87 million in HUD/FHA financing for a portfolio of nine skilled nursing facilities across three Midwestern states

Lument Arranges $87M Refi for Midwest SNF Portfolio

Lument closed an $87-million facility via the HUD/FHA Section 223(f) program to refinance nine skilled nursing facilities totaling 691 beds in Ohio, Michigan and Wisconsin. Managing director Brad Competty led the transaction for Lument. 

The operator, Columbus, OH-based Atrium Centers Inc., is a provider of short-term post-acute rehabilitation and long-term nursing care. Atrium operates 29 SNFs in Ohio, Michigan, Kentucky, and Wisconsin with more than 2,000 total beds. 

“To maximize benefits for Atrium, we started with a thorough trend analysis that identified nine properties that had remained stabilized throughout the pandemic and were ready for HUD financing,” said Competty. “We quickly built out the HUD applications and then worked closely with Atrium to navigate the underwriting and closing process.” 

Ultimately, Lument was able to obtain low, fixed interest rates on all nine loans before the recent significant uptick in rates.
