Branmat Corp. paid $3.9 million last month for the buildings housing Arkansas Pediatric Facility at 4100 Heritage Drive in North Little Rock.
Arkansas Pediatric Facility is an intermediate care facility for the mentally disabled. It has served children from across Arkansas since 1986, according to its website.
The facility is licensed by the Office of Long Term Care to provide services for 58 children from birth to 21 years. It is Medicaid funded and provides residential services to children with disabilities such as cerebral palsy, spina bifida and autism, among other conditions.
The property, which includes almost 4 acres, appraised for $4.4 million in 2017 and last sold for $3.5 million in 2009.
Branmat and Arkansas Pediatric Facility are related businesses.
Branmat of North Little Rock does business as Arkansas Pediatric Facility, said Steve Sink, president of Branmat. The company was incorporated in 1992 and started the business the next year.
Branmat bought the Arkansas Pediatric building from HD Holdings Co., so Branmat wouldn't have to make lease payments on it, Sink said.
Sink's wife, Laura Sink, is administrator of Arkansas Pediatric Facility.
Branmat borrowed $4.5 million from First Security Bank of Searcy to finance the transaction.
