AdCare Acquires Ark. Skilled Nursing Facility for $6.3 Million

AdCare Health Systems, Inc. (NYSE MKT:ADK) has acquired a skilled nursing facility near Little Rock, Ark., for $6.3 million.

The 70-bed facility is newly constructed and is close to two hospitals, which management believes will serve as key referral sources.

Because the facility has not yet opened, there are not historical performance metrics. However, management expects annualized revenue to exceed $8.5 million and to contribute positively to the consolidated bottom line, inclusive of depreciation and interest expense.

AdCare expects to complete the acquisition in the fourth quarter of 2012 and will finance the majority of the acquisition with a traditional bank loan.

“This impressive and strategically located facility squarely aligns with our strategic goals and significantly broadens our presence in the Little Rock, Arkansas region,” said Boyd Gentry, AdCare’s president and CEO, in a statement. “Our optimization strategy leverages our regional teams to increase facility occupancy and Medicare census, as well as optimize reimbursement and patient care.”
