I want to start a home health care center, but how do I get funding?

Those who are looking for a business opportunity that can also help to make their own community a better place may consider going into the home health care marketplace. This market allows the entrepreneur the chance for financial reward while also helping to better ensure those in need of additional medical assistance can receive quality care.

Business leaders who are looking to dive into this market may wonder about financing options. Funding can come from a number of sources, including:

  • Bank loans. Just like any other venture, banks can provide funding. In a recent example, leading national bank CIT Group Inc announced a $55.5 million financing deal for health and hospice provider New Day Healthcare.
  • Government loans. The United States Small Business Administration (SBA) also offers loans that can help small businesses get a start within their marketplace. These offerings can have better rates and lower fees.
  • Investors. It can help to ask around. It is possible friends, family members or co-workers would be interested in investing in this new opportunity.

Funding is just one of many steps to take before starting a home health care center. It is important to do your due diligence and make sure you are aware of all applicable regulations and required licenses before opening up your new facility. Making sure you set everything up right will save you from dealing with allegations that the facility violated a state or federal law in the future.
