BETHESDA, Md. -- Walker & Dunlop, Inc. (NYSE: WD) has announced that in 2012, the Company provided $415,137,300 in financing for healthcare properties nationwide.

"Walker & Dunlop's financing platform for healthcare properties continues to grow. As one of the largest Agency and FHA lenders in the country, we have experience providing construction, bridge, equity and mezzanine financing for seniors, residential care and hospital projects nationwide," said Walker & Dunlop Senior Vice President & Head of FHA Healthcare Finance, Michael Vaughn. "The acquisition of CWCapital expanded our capabilities with Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and HUD, and we are continuing to develop proprietary capital to provide interim financing for healthcare properties located nationwide. Additionally, HUD recently released regulations for new hospital refinancing and we are currently working on opportunities to provide financing under that program. Our most recent transactions really exemplify the range of Walker & Dunlop's capabilities."
