White Oak Provides $161M For Allegiant Healthcare’s 17-SNF Acquisition
White Oak Healthcare Finance made another major financing for a skilled nursing transaction to kick off 2019.
The affiliate of White Oak Global Advisors, LLC acted as sole lender and administrative agent for the funding of a $161 million senior credit facility for Allegiant Healthcare and Hillstone Healthcare, Inc. The funds were used to acquire and provide working capital for a portfolio of 17 skilled nursing facilities in Ohio in what White Oak called a “strategic alliance” between the two providers.
Allegiant provides short-term post-hospital rehabilitation and long-term and specialty care, while Hillstone is an Ohio-based skilled nursing and assisted living operator.
“Allegiant is a very experienced investor that has become one of the top investors in the post-acute care industry,” White Oak managing director Ross Eldridge said in a statement about the deal. “We are excited to support Allegiant in their acquisition and to partner with a talented and growing operator in Hillstone Healthcare. We look forward to working with both groups in the years to come.”
The deal is the latest in a string of skilled nursing moves by White Oak Healthcare Finance. Most recently, the investment company acquired a $700 million portfolio of 12 loans associated with skilled nursing and senior housing properties from Capital One Healthcare and its affiliated banks.
The San Francisco-based firm also helped arrange a $190 million senior credit facility for 17 skilled nursing facilities owned by the joint venture BM Eagle Holdings, led by affiliates of BlueMountain Capital Management.
