JEDA Bonds Finance Statewide Expansion for Presbyterian Communities of S.C.

Presbyterian Homes of South Carolina is using a $66 million tax-exempt bond issue through the South Carolina Jobs-Economic Development Authority (JEDA) to build new facilities and retire previous bonds for expansion at its continuing care retirement communities across the Palmetto State.

The four separate issues of Series 2016 Economic Development Revenue Bonds will be used to build a new replacement 88-bed skilled nursing center and 18 independent living apartments and related amenities at The Village at Summerville, 12 independent living apartments and related amenities at The Foothills Community in Easley, and retire debt for capital improvements at its facilities in Lexington, Clinton and Florence.

“Flexible, tax-exempt financings through JEDA have once again helped us expand our ability to provide the best continuing retirement care communities we can to the people who need them.”
— Ashley Taylor, Chief Financial Officer for Presbyterian Communities of South Carolina

“Continuing care retirement communities are of paramount importance to our aging population. JEDA is pleased to assist in these financings,” said Harry A. Huntley, CPA, Executive Director of JEDA in Columbia.
