Get the Best Medical Practice Loan Options

Like any other small business owners, physicians and other medical professionals often run into situations requiring business financing. Owning your own medical practice can have its challenges. That’s why we offer medical practice loans and other options that you won’t find at traditional banks or credit unions. AdvancePoint Capital provides a wide range of medical business loan terms and financing options for your healthcare company through our network of medical practice lenders.

Your medical practice faces unique challenges in the ever-changing world of healthcare management. Mergers and acquisitions have become more popular in medical care due to rising costs and other industry factors. Healthcare practices face many financial hurdles, including:

  • Consumerism
  • Regulatory uncertainty
  • Competition
  • Mergers/acquisitions
  • Healthcare technology

Nearly half of all healthcare practitioners no longer have an ownership stake, so those who do must prepare for needs that may require the need for a medical practice loan.
A physician turning to a large bank like Wells Fargo, U.S. Bank, and Bank of America for medical practice loans might meet more challenges due to most banks’ strict underwriting guidelines.

AdvancePoint Capital has wide-spanning experience in medical practice loans and small business loans for healthcare for years. We understand the difficulties of operating a medical practice and the need for practice loans to support it. Our job is to effectively provide the best business financing products to established businesses so that you can operate your practice effectively. We offer a wide range of medical practice loans and alternative funding, even medical loans for bad credit through our marketplace of alternative lenders that help our doctors decide what best serves their needs.

Benefits of Medical Practices Business Loans

However, there are many benefits to obtaining medical practice loans. Whether you’re looking for new medical real estate opportunities to expand the practice or you need financing to keep up with operational costs — there’s a loan option for your medical practice.

Opening a new practice can be even more complex as other healthcare professionals will tell you due to initial costs. There are a variety of operating costs that a doctor can face that can impact the practice, like staffing, employee salaries, delayed receivables, collections, pressure from large medical groups, maintaining business licenses, and competition.

Software and Technology Upgrades

As innovations are always omnipresent, it’s crucial to have the business credit facility available to acquire the necessary technology to keep up with best practices in patients management, treatment, record keeping, and other processes that a doctor may have to manage. A practice loan is a solution to this problem.

Business Debt Consolidation

Debt can build up in a Medical Practice, so debt consolidation may be necessary to improve the overall cash influx for a practice. Another popular reason for debt refinancing is medical school debt.

Purchasing Medical Practice Loans
