Proceeds of the facility were used to refinance senior and subordinated debt, fund ongoing working capital and support the company’s growth strategy.

CIT Healthcare served as Sole Lead Arranger, Sole Bookrunner and Administrative Agent for the transaction. Financing was provided by CIT Bank, the U.S. commercial bank subsidiary of CIT. Fifth Third Bank and RBS Citizens served as the Syndication Agent and Documentation Agent, respectively, on the transaction.

Jim Deal, Chief Executive Officer of Hospice Compassus, said, “CIT provided a flexible and competitive financing structure that enabled us to reduce our overall cost of debt while positioning our company for continued growth. We look forward to building on our partnership with both CIT and the bank group that supported the transaction.”
