  • Recovery Continues at Sabra Health Care REIT

    After all the earnings reports for the fourth quarter 2023, we think it is safe to say the industry really has moved on from the pandemic. Not that the lasting effects have disappeared, as they may be with us for the rest of the decade, but most everyone seems to be getting back to “normal,” although at a different pace for each one.

Monarch Sources SNF Acquisition Debt

Monarch Sources SNF Acquisition Debt

Mission Health Communities, a private multi-state operator of senior care facilities, recently engaged Alec Blanc of Monarch Advisors to source acquisition debt for the purchase of a 78-bed skilled nursing facility in Topeka, Kansas. The behavioral-focused facility was already operated by Mission Health, making for a seamless transition. Occupancy hovered between the high-80s and low-90s, and the facility was profitable, benefiting from a significant rate increase in Kansas effective July 1, 2023.

Owner/Operator Chooses Refinance over Sale

Owner/Operator Chooses Refinance over Sale

We have written numerous times of property owners not being tempted into the M&A market lately, due to values being below their expectations for their properties. One of those owners, a local operator in Michigan, decided to refinance its 150-unit independent living community after sale offers came in lower than they desired. Built by the same operator 15 years ago about 15 miles outside of Ann Arbor, the three-story community had experienced a census drop of over 20% since the start of the pandemic. That probably did not help its sale prospects. So, JD Stettin of Carnegie Capital arranged a refinance totaling $9 million from a syndicate of local credit unions. The loan came with a... Read More »
