Capital One Secures Refinance of Illinois Assisted Living Community

Five years after acquiring a 154-bed assisted living community in Park Ridge, Illinois, Cascade Capital Group (with Legacy Healthcare as its operating partner) is refinancing with the help of Capital One. Joshua Rosen originated the HUD loan, which totaled $15.1 million, came with a 35-year term and replaced conventional bank debt. In the years since acquiring the facility, Cascade had extensively renovated the community, which now has a five-star rating from CMS. The transaction recoups capital expenditures and partner debt, and frees up cash for Cascade to pursue other projects. Read More »
