Bond financing facilitated by WHEFA will be used to help Milwaukee Regional Medical Center Utility and Infrastructure Obligated Group (MRMC) finance costs associated with certain future capital expenditures for improvements to its steam and chilled water system and future development of an 80-acre site on its campus. Proceeds of the bond financing were also used to refinance an interim taxable loan used for the acquisition of and improvements to certain water assets, and roadwork and utility improvements on the MRMC campus. This tax-exempt financing process has enabled MRMC 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.
