The second largest senior healthcare provider in Georgia in need of a loan to help a Marietta healthcare facility to improve its efficiency, resident count and building standards. A doctor who was able to achieve his goal of expanding his medical practice in Rio Rancho, New Mexico. The quick and important purchase of a 100-room nursing home in College Park, Georgia.
These are just a few examples of the challenges put to AVANA Capital by businesses in the healthcare realm. As the need for medical services is expected to skyrocket over the next decade due to demographic trends and new healthcare legislation, businesses are turning to AVANA Capital at critical moments to ask for help in getting deals done, and, as a result, creating or saving jobs.
The medical office building industry, for example, saw the largest volume of sales on record last year. It is poised for even more growth as the Affordable Care Act is requiring hospital systems to place focus on operational efficiencies, which can mean a need to reduce use of their costly inpatient facilities in favor of less costly outpatient centers. And medical office buildings are the solution for many of them. In fact, the demand for medical office buildings is expected to grow by 19 percent by 2019.
Whether it’s purchasing a medical office building or senior living facility, improving or expanding existing healthcare space or helping a doctor expand a practice, AVANA Capital is helping healthcare clients find what they need, with jobs created and communities strengthened along the way.
This is what AVANA does and it’s why since 2005 the company has funded more than $600 million in loans that led to 9,000-and-counting new jobs created and saved in 30 states. It’s no accident the word AVANA means “preserver.” Of course, any company that saves companies for a living can proudly wear the motto “Preserving Wealth. Creating Growth.”
How it Works
AVANA Capital helps companies buy new property and restructure finances. It’s one of the best in the business at ensuring that government-backed loan products are leveraged to the fullest extent possible.
AVANA specializes in SBA and USDA loans designed to grow businesses, so the parameters for qualification can be easier to achieve than conventional commercial real estate loans. This means AVANA Capital’s borrowers can access up to 90 percent loan-to-value financing, with quick prequalification and a range of loan structures.
The company provides a scope of loan products—SBA 7(a), SBA 504, and USDA B&I loans—and allows for construction and tenant improvements. What also helps AVANA help companies is its ability to partner with other lenders. These partnerships mean more loans can be originated and funded for companies that are looking to grow.
“We are at a crossroads in terms of healthcare in this country and AVANA Capital is right in the thick of it,” said Sanat Patel, Managing Partner of AVANA Capital. “Between helping doctors pay for the right office space and finding loan solutions for medical facilities, we are seeing more and more demand in commercial real estate for healthcare. That’s where AVANA Capital comes in and uses its resources to come up with an efficient and effective resolution to help those in the healthcare industry thrive, which in turn helps communities thrive.”
