What We Do

With support from Capital Fund, Community Health Care Systems, Inc. (CHCS), has further extended its reach in providing care in rural, medically underserved areas in Central Georgia with the addition of a 19th clinic site. Capital Fund is proud to contribute $2.5 million to this $3.6 million project.  

CHCS is a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) operating in 14 counties in Central Georgia through soon-to-be 19 locations. In addition to Capital Fund’s loan, financing for this project also includes $1.1 million from Primary Care Development Corporation (PCDC).

Slated to be completed in fall 2024, the new 11,500-square-foot building will primarily serve as administrative offices, while also housing their behavioral health hub and newly-added chiropractic services—an offering made possible by this project. The new building will also have an X-Ray room, saving patients a trip to the nearby hospital. The project is estimated to increase patient visits by 86%, from 65,083 in 2021 to a projected 121,350 in 2031.

The clinic will have a dedicated board room as well as training room that will not only serve CHCS employees but also the greater community, with the health center offering educational programs. The administration building will have two reception areas, multiple offices, conference rooms, break rooms, a kitchen, space for cubicles, an IT room, and ample storage options—a feature not available in their nearby Tennille location. By moving administration to the new site, CHCS will free up space at their Tennille site to introduce optometry services. With the new service offerings and the construction of the new site, full-time equivalent employees (FTEs) are estimated to increase 15% by 2031.

CHCS was incorporated in 1992 to develop and administer comprehensive health care and support services to residents in and around their counties. Additionally, CHCS also provides health education, disease prevention programs, community outreach, and enrollment services. CHCS believes everyone is entitled to quality care that meets their needs regardless of their ability to pay.

Community Health Development, Inc. (CDHI)’s recent $16.4 million capital project in Uvalde, TX, is not only expanding area health services, but also investing in the future of its young community members. In addition to growing its medical, dental, behavioral health, preventative health, and pharmacy services, the expansion will also introduce a workforce development program for local youth. Capital Fund is proud to contribute both a $3.4 million source loan and a $200,000 direct loan to this project.

Construction is currently underway for the new, modern 16,000-square-foot primary care clinic, which will expand patient services, provide support and educational services to staff, and serve as a community resource to other non-profits in Uvalde. The integration of medical and social services in one location will be a long-awaited convenience due to limited local transportation options.

In addition to Capital Fund’s contribution, the project is also being financed through a $16 million New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) allocation from TransPecos Development Corp.

The new health center will consist of six medical exam rooms, three dental operatories, a behavioral health office, a clinical work area for medical providers and nurses, a dental work area, a lab, pharmacy, medication room, two sterilization rooms, and an enabling services office. It will also house an office space with eight workstations and two administrative offices, a workforce development area and internet café, seven offices dedicated to legal aid and social services, a large lobby, training and meeting rooms, a breakroom, kitchen, and multiple storage areas.

Partnering with Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, the health center will offer a program that allows youth to use virtual reality to explore various career choices and emerging technologies. Nearly all non-provider staff for the health center will be hired from the local community, offering competitive, livable wages compared to other large employers in the area. Additionally, CHDI is working with the state PCA as one of five health centers engaged in a pilot apprentice program focused on training medical assistants. If successful, this program will expand to include dental assistants and pharmacy technicians.

In 2022, CDHI delivered care to 11,709 patients across 44,751 visits through 121 full time equivalent employees (FTEs) at five locations. Of the patients who reported their income, 85% were at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level. Per the 2020 census, Uvalde County has a total population of 24,565, and it is estimated that 19% of the population lacks health care coverage. However, due to Uvalde’s proximity to the Mexican border, there is a large migrant population not always reflected in census data, leading CDHI to estimate a higher actual population.

The new health center is located in a medically underserved area with a 32.50% poverty rate and an unemployment rate 1.81 times the national average. As a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), CHDI is dedicated to serving all patients regardless of their ability to pay. The health center strives to be the provider of choice for their community blending comprehensive patient-centered services, staff engagement, the latest technology, community partnerships, and strategic relationships.

In a groundbreaking move for sustainable healthcare, Capital Fund is excited to support Collective Energy Company, LLC, with a strategic loan aimed at enhancing environmental and health outcomes. This partnership marks a pivotal moment, showcasing our commitment to innovative solutions that address both health and environmental challenges.

Collective Energy, based in Ojai, California, has embarked on a mission to equip 23 Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) with state-of-the-art solar and energy storage systems. The project, valued at approximately $8.6 million, leverages solar tax credits covering 30% to 50% of the system costs, making these vital upgrades accessible and affordable.

Capital Fund has provided a $5 million loan, with $3 million funded directly by us and an additional $2 million potentially sourced from a participating lender to meet the project's full financial needs. The Kresge Foundation has generously offered a 20% guarantee for the loan, reinforcing the financial stability and sustainability of this initiative.

The solar systems will enable health centers to purchase power at rates equivalent to their current electrical expenses, with the option to buy the systems after six years. This not only ensures financial predictability but also contributes to significant environmental benefits. We are currently exploring metrics to quantify the environmental impact of our loans, such as kilowatt-hours produced and the equivalent number of trees saved.

This project serves as a model for future initiatives that aim to integrate sustainability into community health efforts. By reducing operational costs and minimizing environmental impact, Collective Energy is setting a new standard for how health services can contribute to a healthier planet. Learn more about Collective Energy here >

Bronx Community Health Network (BCHN) in New York recently closed funding on their first physical health center facility. Capital Fund is proud to support this project with a $4,653,000 bridge loan, with an expected total budget of $8,535,000. 

In addition to Capital Fund’s contribution, the project will be funded with NMTC equity, grants, including a grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), and the health center’s own cash on hand. 

The financing will support the purchase and renovation of a 11,000 square foot building allowing BCHN to open its first site sooner than they would if they were to engage in new construction. This state-of-the-art community-based, multi-service Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) is designed to provide co-located, integrated medical, behavioral, and oral health services as well as podiatry, pharmacy, and complementary health promotion, education, outreach, social supports, care coordination, and chronic disease management services.  

As a patient- and community-centric facility, the project incorporates activity spaces for all age groups such as afterschool programming, fitness, cooking, health, and financial literacy workshops. The clinic will also provide care through face-to-face, telehealth, and telephonic patient encounters as well as in-home visits and assessments as needed. Additionally, clinical and administrative systems will be streamlined and digitalized to achieve optimum operations and financial efficiencies, data tracking and analysis, program evaluation, and internal and external stakeholder satisfaction. 

Bronx Community Health Network has an 18-year history of providing quality care to their community, acting as a pass-through entity for the Montefiore Health System. Located in a diverse area, BCHN has always prided themselves on creating a health center without walls, to break down barriers in care and increase access, and quality of care without exceptions. This unique positioning has allowed them to provide access to comprehensive, quality, affordable medical, behavioral, and oral health care as well as social determinants of health-related services to clients who otherwise might not have received care.

In response to an increase in patient demand in the community it serves, Virginia Garcia Memorial Health Center (VMHC) in Oregon is embarking on a $25.4 million purchase, renovation, and expansion project to more than double the size of their previously leased facility. Capital Fund is proud to support this project with an $8 million New Markets Tax Credits allocation. The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) is contributing a $1 million grant as well as a $2.1 million earmark, and the health center is contributing its own cash investment. 

The project will expand the existing clinic from 8,786 sq. ft. to 22,733 sq. ft. and reconfigure the existing space to better serve patients and staff. Notably, an elevator will be added, making the second floor accessible to all. The new facility will continue to house primary care services, dental, mental health, medication-assisted substance abuse treatment services, and a pharmacy. The project will enable the health center to serve 25% more patients, increase visits by 22%, and hire 18% more permanent staff to serve a larger patient base. 

There is an impressive sustainability aspect to the project which will help meet VGMHC’s Path to Net Zero energy-efficient design and performance targets, established by the Energy Trust of Oregon (ETO). The health center worked with ETO, architects, engineers, and eco-construction professionals to develop plans to support energy efficiency goals set for the facility. VGMHC is also determining the feasibility of pursuing the Architecture 2030 Challenge that requires an 80% reduction in energy consumption. One of the eco-friendly aspects of the project is the addition of solar panels on the roof which will generate 89,000 kWh and substantially offset electricity usage for the entire building. 

Virginia Garcia Memorial Health Center was founded in the mid-1970’s in a three-car garage after the health center’s namesake, a six-year old daughter of farmworkers, died from what should have been a treatable infection. Today, the health center provides services to over 43,000 patients per year in Washington and Yamhill counties at five primary care clinics and pharmacies, six dental clinics, a Women’s Clinic, and five school-based clinics. VGMHC also provides outreach to schools, community health fairs, and to migrant and seasonal farmworkers at local camps and commercial nurseries through their mobile clinic. The health center provides high quality, comprehensive, and culturally appropriate primary health care to the communities that they serve.

Due to high patient demand at its 4725 Market Street location in San Diego, CA, Family Health Centers of San Diego (FHCSD)—one of the 10 largest health centers in the country—has embarked on a $24.6 million building expansion project, called The Diamond II – Family Counseling and Wellness Center. Capital Fund is proud to support this project with an $8 million New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) allocation.

In addition to Capital Fund’s allocation, the project will also be funded through an $11 million NMTC allocation from Civic Communities Partners, Inc., and the health center’s cash on hand.

The Diamond II will be a five-story structure with four levels of parking topped by a 20,500-square-foot clinic, which will include a women’s health suite, a physical rehabilitation suite, and a mental health suite. The women’s health suite will consist of 12 exam rooms, two offices for perinatal case management, a fetal non-stress test room, as well as nursing and provider stations. The physical rehabilitation suite will consist of six chiropractic treatment rooms, five sports medicine treatments rooms, a large gym style physical therapy area, and provider stations. The mental health treatment suite will have 22 behavioral health therapy rooms and two behavioral health group treatment rooms.

The new clinic will allow FHCSD to increase annual patients by 25%, from 161,436 in 2022 to a projected 201,865 by 2030. Patient visits are also expected to increase by 31%, growing from 1.03 million in 2022 to nearly 1.4 million in 2030. This project will also grow community jobs, increasing FTEs from 2,054 to 2,716 in 2030—a 32% jump.

The Diamond II Center will be located in the Diamond I Center’s 85,000-square-foot parking lot. Both clinics will continue to operate upon completion of the Diamond II project, set to open in August 2024.

As one of the 10 largest Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC) in the United States, FHCSD operates 73 sites across San Diego County along with multiple mobile medical units. For 50 years, FHCSD’s mission has been to provide caring, affordable, high-quality health care and support services to the communities in which they operate. The health center is focused on identifying and improving the impact negative of social drivers of health on communities. This mission has resulted in FHCSD expanding beyond primary health care and into health research, housing, employment training, and job opportunities for its low-income patients and their families.

Capital Fund provided Hudson Headwaters Health Network (HHHN) in Glens Falls, NY, a $5 million NMTC allocation to support their $20 million health center expansion project which just closed financing on May 2, 2023. HHHN's new site will establish a Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) facility to serve individuals ages 55 and older with multiple chronic health conditions but who can still live safely in the community.

The project includes the construction of a new 17,000-square-foot medical facility as well as a 14,000-square-foot PACE Center. HHHN’s existing clinic, located half a mile from the new sites, will continue to offer urgent care services. The new medical clinic will provide a larger, more comfortable space for patients and providers. The expansion project is expected to increase patients from 118,000 annually in 2022 to 155,500 in 2030, as well as grow visits from nearly 400,000 in 2022 to 525,000 in 2030. The new facilities are slated to be completed in September 2023.

The new PACE program will accommodate 80 to 100 participants on any given day and will include multi-purpose space for adult day care with health care and social activities, treatment and therapy rooms, food preparation and dining areas, and administrative offices. Participants in HHHN’s PACE program will receive their health care from a team of health professionals who continually assess, coordinate, and implement required services for each participant. This program, designed to serve the area’s aging and vulnerable patients, will include coverage for at-home skilled nursing care, doctor visits, personal care, physical and occupational therapy, meals, social day programs, prescriptions, specialty medical care, respite care to ease the strain on caregivers, transportation, and nursing home care if necessary.

In addition to the NMTC allocation from Capital Fund, this project was also funded through an NMTC allocation from Primary Care Development Corporation (PCDC), a grant from the NY Department of Health, and a cash contribution from HHHN.

Across its 21 locations, HHHN offers a full range of services including primary, dental, and mental health. The health center’s first site, in what would later be known as Hudson Headwaters Health Network, opened in Chestertown in 1974. Over the next few years, HHHN expanded to open clinics in Warrensburg, North Creek, and Indian Lake, before these four health centers officially became HHHN in 1981.
