Oak Ridge, N.J. – January 6, 2022 – Lakeland Bank was pleased to provide a $3,000,000 commercial mortgage and $1,000,000 line of credit to a Behavioral Health and Substance Abuse Facility in New York City.
“Covid-19 has created increased public attention on long-term care facilities, but equally noteworthy is the impact it has had on behavioral health and substance abuse,” said Roberto Camacho, Vice President of Healthcare Lending. “According to CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics, there was an estimated 100,000+ overdose deaths in the U.S. from April 2020 to April 2021 – a 28.5% increase from the prior year and an all-time high. There is no argument that this segment of healthcare remains grossly underserved.”
“Given the limited number of OTP-1 Licenses in the State of New York, we were fortunate and honored to be given the opportunity to provide financing to a key stakeholder in New York City’s efforts the major public health crisis of drug addiction,” said Camacho. This organization has helped tens of thousands of people through their treatment programs and community engagement efforts, and we look forward to a long-term relationship with this impressive organization.”
