Bond financing facilitated by WHEFA will be used to help Bellin Memorial Hospital, Inc. (the “Hospital”) finance costs associated with capital projects at the Hospital and other health care facilities in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The project includes the renovation of cardiac catheterization lab suites, expansion of the Hospital’s oncology and infusion center and related pharmacy space, construction of a neo-natal intensive care unit, remodeling the Hospital’s maternity unit, relocating the Hospital’s kitchen and cafeteria and information technology upgrades including electronic medical records, timekeeping software and hardware, security modules, and hardware and software associated with disaster recovery, firewalls, and communication systems. This tax-exempt financing process has enabled the Hospital to operate more effectively by financing its capital expenses at low interest rates (2.50-5.00%).
WHEFA is proud to continue its mission of assisting all eligible Wisconsin nonprofit institutions to obtain and maintain access to tax-exempt financing in order to finance or refinance their capital improvement and expansion needs.
