How we help

PCDC’s Capital Investment Practice invests in communities by providing advisory services and flexible, affordable capital to create lasting and sustainable impact for the organizations and the communities they serve. PCDC provides strategic advice to help organizations that are planning facility development projects and offers a variety of affordable and flexible short-term and long-term loan solutions to support those capital projects as well as other business and service expansions.

PCDC’s Capital Investment staff understand primary care business models and monitor policy changes and regulations that affect primary care practices and revenue streams.

To fund our loans, we raise impact-focused capital from government, banks, and foundations. We also partner with other community lenders and advocates who are dedicated to catalyzing excellence in primary care to ensure we can meet all borrowers’ needs, regardless of project size.
