Red Capital Markets Serves as F.A. for community hospital in Hoopeston, IL to help them secure USDA Direct Loan to replace 75 Skilled Nursing Beds and Replace/Renovate More

Red Capital Markets, LLC (MEMBER FINRA/SIPC), the investment banking arm of comprehensive capital provider RED CAPITAL GROUP, LLC, is pleased to announce it recently served as a financial advisor to Hoopeston Regional Health Center (“Hoopeston RHC”) to secure financing to replace its existing skilled nursing facility. Hoopeston RHC is a not-for-profit hospital, skilled nursing, and seniors housing operator in rural Eastern Illinois, located approximately 120 miles south of Chicago. The financing was secured and funded through the USDA’s Community Facilities Direct Loan program to acquire land and construct a new 75-bed skilled nursing facility.

In addition to the 75-bed skilled nursing facility, Hoopeston RHC operates a 25-bed Critical Access Hospital that was originally built in 1962, plus a 30-unit senior living community which was added in 1995. Hoopeston RHC serves a population of approximately 16,390 residents. The USDA Community Facilities Direct Loan has a 40 year amortization period and carries a 3.75% fixed interest rate. Proceeds from the USDA loan will be used for construction of a replacement 75-bed skilled nursing facility on a new senior housing campus located just north of Hoopeston, Illinois.

In addition to the USDA financing, Hoopeston RHC also expanded its affiliation with Carle Foundation Hospital and will bring its acute care and physician clinic facilities into the Carle organization as independent operating units. Along with this integration, Carle Clinic provided additional funding that will allow Hoopeston RHC to replace its existing surgery and recovery areas and renovate its emergency department and mechanical systems.

Harry Brockus, CEO of Hoopeston Regional Health Center said, “As a first time CEO, we turned to RED CAPITAL to assist us with our financing needs due to their extensive experience financing community hospitals through a variety of bond and governmental programs. Every step of the way, they were there with the right answers and made a daunting task seem simple. It was refreshing to work with a financing partner that was driven to find a solution to our financing needs.”

Jeffrey C. Fivecoat, Vice President of Red Capital Markets, LLC commented, “It was a pleasure to work with Harry and the team at Hoopeston Regional Health Center to secure the financing necessary to modernize and expand skilled nursing care in Vermilion County. After examining a variety of financing options, the USDA direct loan provided extremely attractive interest rates and financing terms, enabling the hospital to tackle a much needed full nursing facility replacement. This truly is a great outcome for the residents of Hoopeston and the surrounding area.”
