WHEFA Bond Financing Helps Mile Bluff Medical Center Construct and Renovate in Mauston
Bonds Placed with Signature Public Funding Corp.
“The benefits to tax-exempt debts are lower cost in interest over a longer period. As a non-profit healthcare organization, we are invested in keeping the cost of healthcare at the lowest while keeping the health system viable. Our organization is rooted in the community and needs means to stay independent and tax-exempt bonds are part of the means needed to accomplish serving our communities with limited resources.”
– Rebecca Oetzman,
Vice President/Chief Financial Officer
Mile Bluff Medical Center
Bond financing facilitated by WHEFA was used to help Mile Bluff Medical Center finance the remodeling of its inpatient pharmacy, outpatient cancer care unit, and obstetrical unit, as well as the acquisition and remodeling of a vacant Shopko building into an urgent care, retail pharmacy and dialysis unit. This tax-exempt financing process has enabled the Mile Bluff Medical Center to operate more effectively by financing its capital expenses at a low interest rate.
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 their capital improvement and expansion needs.
