Butler Snow’s Hospital and Healthcare Finance team is well-versed in the development and financing of healthcare facilities. Our attorneys serve as bond counsel, underwriter’s and disclosure counsel, borrower’s counsel, credit facility counsel, investor’s counsel or trustees’ counsel nationwide on numerous healthcare financings for various types of healthcare entities such as, hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, continuing care retirement communities, senior independent living facilities, medical office buildings, and physician clinics. We counsel county and city owned healthcare systems in connection with long-term leases of such facilities to private operators.
Our team’s breadth of knowledge of federal, state and local programs opens the doors to a combination of financing tools to benefit our clients and their healthcare projects. Our attorneys are instrumental in the development of creative mechanisms to finance healthcare facilities by combining New Markets Tax Credits, HUD financing, USDA guarantees, CDBG funds and Gulf Opportunity Zone Tax Exempt Bonds. Our group is knowledgeable in the complex rules and regulations that affect these transactions and handle the extensive documentation, negotiation and time commitment to finalize and close the financing.
