Bond financing facilitated by WHEFA was used to help Mile Bluff Medical Center finance the remodeling of its inpatient pharmacy, outpatient cancer care unit, and obstetrical unit, as well as the acquisition and remodeling of a vacant Shopko building into an urgent care, retail pharmacy and dialysis unit.  This tax-exempt financing process has enabled the Mile Bluff Medical Center to operate more effectively by financing its capital expenses at a low interest rate.

WHEFA is proud to continue its mission of assisting all eligible Wisconsin nonprofit institutions to obtain and maintain access to tax-exempt financing in order to finance their capital improvement and expansion needs.


Since inception, WHEFA has provided several hundred Wisconsin nonprofit corporations access to private and public capital markets at lower costs than are available to them in the conventional marketplace.  Pursuant to Section 231.10 of the Wisconsin Statutes, bonds issued by WHEFA are not considered indebtedness of the State of Wisconsin, and the State has no obligation to repay any bonds issued by WHEFA under any circumstances. Additionally, WHEFA does not utilize any State moneys to fund its operations.
