Bridge Loan Solutions for Healthcare Properties

Learn how VIUM Capital offers tailored bridge loan solutions for skilled nursing facilities (SNFs), providing non-recourse financing to sustain operations and facilitate growth.

At VIUM Capital, we understand the unique challenges and opportunities facing skilled nursing facilities (SNFs), especially when it comes to securing timely financing. In this article, we'll explore how VIUM Capital's tailored bridge loan solutions empower SNFs to bridge the gap between their immediate financing needs and securing permanent HUD Loans

Providing HUD Solutions 

Navigating the intricacies of securing HUD financing for SNFs can be a lengthy and nuanced process. From completing specific HUD forms to meeting varied eligibility criteria, SNF owners can find themselves in a challenged financing position as they pursue approval for a HUD insured loan. However, the pressing need for low cost capital in order to continue funding daily operations at a SNF does not diminish during this bridge period. In fact, it becomes even more critical to ensure that essential services, staff salaries, and facility upkeep are not compromised. Recognizing this need, bridge loans have emerged as a practical and accessible solution for SNFs caught between funding an acquisition or recapitalization, and the actual closing of HUD permanent financing.

Though HUD is moving to become more accessible for seniors housing and healthcare properties, bridge loans serve as a financing lifeline for SNFs, providing interim funding to bridge the gap until HUD funding is secured. This interim financing allows SNFs to address immediate financial obligations, such as payroll, utilities, and supplies, without interruption. Moreover, bridge loans offer flexibility, enabling SNFs to navigate the complex landscape of healthcare financing with greater ease and confidence.

By partnering with reputable lenders like VIUM, SNF owners gain access to specialized financing solutions tailored to their unique needs. VIUM's expertise in healthcare financing and bridge lending ensures that SNFs receive personalized assistance and support throughout the loan process. VIUM facilitates a seamless transition between closing the acquisition or recapitalization and securing HUD permanent funding by providing the essential capital needed to adequately sustain operations through the term of the bridge loan.

A Non-Recourse Advantage

An advantage to securing HUD financing is that its non-recourse. While most bank bridge loan options require recourse, we offer both limited recourse and non-recourse bridge funding options. Such options can provide borrowers additional peace of mind by limiting their personal liability.

Non-recourse financing shields owners and operators from personal liability, safeguarding their personal assets in the event of default. The lender's recourse is solely to the collateralized property, meaning that in the worst-case scenario of default, the facility's owner retains their personal assets, mitigating the risk of further financial loss.

This protection can allow them to engage in financing transactions with greater confidence, knowing that their personal assets are not at stake. In summary, non-recourse lending serves as a valuable financial tool for skilled nursing facilities, offering a balance between access to capital and risk mitigation, ultimately supporting long-term financial health and growth objectives.
