Contemporary Healthcare Capital (CHC) announced that it provided mezzanine financing for Cascade Capital Group’s large portfolio acquisition of Upper Midwest senior care facilities from last month. The portfolio sale included five skilled nursing facilities and two assisted living communities in Minnesota and South Dakota.

Their outgoing operator was on the verge of bankruptcy, adding complexity to the transaction that was handled by Rob Reis of Marcus & Millichap. The Minnesota facilities were leased to Monarch Healthcare Management and the South Dakota facilities to Eduro Healthcare. CIBC had provided the senior acquisition loan, but CHC followed that up with a $4.22 mezzanine million loan to cover both the acquisition and associated closing costs.
