    CommuniCare, a post-acute care provider currently operating 73 facilities in seven states, used the real estate term loan to finance the acquisition of 10 skilled nursing facilities. The revolving line of credit provides CommuniCare with ongoing working capital financing. CIT served as the administrative agent on the senior credit facilities.

"We greatly appreciated CIT's expertise and assistance in bringing this financing to a successful closing."
