We will also discuss the Hospital Innovations deal with owner/CFO Dr John Johnson and COO Bernard Albertini. — The Hospital Innovations deal provides financing to expand the East Ohio Regional hospital in Martins Ferry, Ohio — The hospital is adding a behavioural health unit to treat patients with opioid addiction which qualifies this as a national interest investment — Prior investors have been approved for expedited processing — Dr Johnson invested over $40m of his own capital into the business and will maintain a significant equity stake — 500+ existing jobs at the hospital count towards the EB-5 requirement, ensuring more than enough jobs for all EB-5 investors — The appraisal value of the hospital is $65m Hospital Innovations, LLC, a healthcare management company with proven experience in operating health care organizations throughout Ohio, acquired the East Ohio Regional Hospital in 2020 with the vision of improving healthcare accessibility in the community.
