CareTrust REIT Buys Skilled Nursing Facility in Nampa, Idaho
NAMPA, IDAHO — CareTrust REIT has acquired Cascadia of Nampa, a newly constructed, 99-bed transitional rehabilitation facility in Nampa. The facility was added to CareTrust’s existing master lease with Idaho-based Cascadia Healthcare LLC, bringing the total facility count under the Cascadia master lease to 12 facilities with 1,013 licensed beds.
CareTrust participated in the facility’s development, making a preferred equity investment with Cascadia’s development affiliate in 2016 to construct the asset. In conjunction with the investment, CareTrust obtained an option to purchase the facility at a formula-based price upon stabilization of the operations. Cascadia completed construction and opened the facility in November of 2017.
CareTrust’s investment for Cascadia of Nampa was approximately $12.8 million, inclusive of transaction costs and after receiving credit for CareTrust’s original equity investment and preferred returns thereon. Initial annual cash rent will be approximately $1.5 million. The master lease carries annual CPI-based escalators and has approximately twelve years remaining on the initial term, plus three five-year renewal options. The acquisition was funded using cash on hand.
