Ziegler, a specialty investment bank, is pleased to announce the successful closing of the Adventist HealthCare $66,845,000 Series 2020 and Series 2021 Bonds (the “Bonds”) issued through the Maryland Health and Higher Educational Facilities Authority.

Adventist HealthCare, rated ‘Baa3’ by Moody’s, is a Maryland non-profit corporation and the parent company of a diversified healthcare system headquartered in Gaithersburg, Maryland. As the only non-profit health system headquartered in Montgomery County, Maryland, Adventist HealthCare has more than a century-long tradition of serving the community, including more than 1 million residents in Maryland and the District of Columbia. Adventist HealthCare operates three acute care hospitals, a behavioral/psychiatric hospital, and a rehabilitation hospital.

Ziegler served as the sole manager for the $66,845,000 tax-exempt Bonds. $18,725,000 Series 2020 are fixed rate bonds and $48,120,000 Series 2021 are fixed rate bonds with a delivery date in October 2021. Proceeds of the sale of the Bonds will be used to current refund the Series 2014A Bonds, forward refund the Series 2011A Bonds, and pay costs of issuance. As a result of the refinancing, Adventist HealthCare achieved significant cash flow savings by reducing its cost of capital.
