“Consistent with our past experiences, the Golub deal team was able to react quickly and was solutions oriented.  Their knowledge of the space in particular, and overall experience as a leading healthcare lender, made for a smooth process.  We look forward to working with the Golub Team again,” said Rob Healy, CGP Managing Partner.
