Midwest Buyer

For this Skilled Nursing acquisition, the real estate and operations were offered separately. The operations sale was the result of a Chapter 11 Bankruptcy unrelated to these particular buildings performance. The real estate Seller was an Illinois based private investment group. The Buyer elected to purchase both portions of the transaction during a formal bidding process and they were able to write offers on both separately. The Buyer, a partnership between an Illinois based owner operator and an Ohio based capital group, plan to utilize their extensive operating experience to improve margins, decrease bad debt write offs, improve the Medicare census and in turn, quickly improve the bottom line performance of the portfolio. Their local operations will be overseen by an experienced Florida operator that has prior knowledge of these particular properties. CapitalSource and Contemporary Healthcare Capital provided the financing for the assets.


The three skilled nursing acquisition consisted of a total of 436 beds. The census at the time of sale was 85%. The sales price was $40,000,000 at 1 10% cap rate.
