PropertyName property
  • Aperion Care Bridgeport (Bridgeport, IL): $3,884,100
  • Aperion Care Burbank (Burbank, IL): $6,880,000
  • Aperion Care Dekalb (Dekalb, IL): $6,278,300

  • Aperion Care Wilmington (Wilmington, IL): $16,240,000
  • Rock River Health Care (Rockford, IL): $6,409,700

Walker & Dunlop’s Joshua Rosen and Brad Annis leveraged their vast expertise and knowledge of the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) programs to refinance the existing loans from the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) for each property. The team structured the financing for all five Aperion Care facilities under Section 232/223(a)7, and the debt for Rock River Health Care was arranged using Section 232/223(f). For Aperion Care Dekalb, the team effectively assisted the client in facilitating a transfer of physical assets (TPA), working through the complex processes associated with a change in the property's mortgagor and operator.

"Walker & Dunlop was happy to secure over $43 million in HUD-insured proceeds for our clients, helping these vital skilled nursing facilities – totaling to 640 beds across 277 units – continue operations throughout the pandemic," said Mr. Rosen. "Our team completely streamlined the process of the often time-intensive financing process, especially for the Aperion Care Dekalb financing assignment, which we successfully expedited using Section 232/223(a)7 in conjunction with a TPA."
