NEW YORK, Aug. 30, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- CIT, a division of First Citizens Bank, today announced that its Healthcare Finance business increased its existing credit facilities for FOX Rehabilitation by $50 million for a total financing of $172.3 million.

Since then, FOX, a leading provider of in-home physical, occupational and speech therapy services to older adult patients throughout the U.S., has generated significant organic growth via increased clinician count and patient volume and has expanded into eight additional states.

"FOX is an outstanding leader in providing therapy services to patients nationwide," said William Douglass, managing director and group head for CIT's Healthcare Finance team. "We have worked hard to understand their needs and provide the right financing package to support their business objectives."
"FOX is a longtime CIT client," said William Duke, a managing director in Healthcare Finance. "We appreciate the opportunity to extend that relationship with this latest financing package and look forward to supporting the company's growth plans in the future."
