Contemporary Healthcare Capital helped finance another acquisition this month for a 50-bed skilled nursing facility in Gastonia, North Carolina. Ivy Senior Living was the borrower, obtaining both a senior loan from Millennium Bank and Alliance Bank, and a $504,750 mezzanine loan from Contemporary. The combined loans will fund the acquisition, a $200,000 working capital line of credit and $200,000 for facility renovations.

This is the second acquisition mezzanine financing Contemporary has closed in the last month. In September, the firm helped affiliates of Opal Senior Living acquire a 115-bed assisted living/memory care community in Nashville, Tennessee. Opal received a $500,000 mezzanine loan from Contemporary and an accompanying senior loan from CoastalStates Bank.

In addition to funding the acquisition, the combined financing also provided for about $300,000 in additional property renovations and upgrades. Previously a skilled nursing facility until it was substantially renovated and converted to assisted living, the community features 60 AL beds and 55 MC beds, and it is one of only two senior living properties in the Nashville metro area to accept Medicaid waiver residents.
