The purpose of this SBA 504 loan is to assist a local healthcare company to purchase its leased facility, giving the owner an extra 4,500 sq ft and 70% occupancy of the property. This allows the company to assist more customers, while maintaining quality service.
The company currently employs 35 full-time staff. As a result of project completion, they will create 15 additional jobs to support anticipated growth.
