COSTA MESA, Calif., Aug. 21, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pacific Mercantile Bank ("the Bank"), the wholly owned subsidiary of Pacific Mercantile Bancorp (NASDAQ:PMBC), today announced that it has provided a $3.5 million revolving line of credit to Northwest Medical.  In addition to the financing, Northwest Medical utilizes a full suite of Pacific Mercantile Bank's depository products and cash management services.  Northwest Medical was referred to Pacific Mercantile Bank by its private equity sponsor, Corbel Capital Partners, which acquired the company in March 2018.

For two decades, Northwest Medical has provided quality respiratory services for both the pediatric and adult population in the Northwest and Alaska, with instruction and set-ups performed by respiratory therapists.  Northwest Medical employs people with integrity and a caring commitment to assist patients with their needs and goals.  The company strives to be flexible and open to patient input and to maintain the quickest response time in the community.

"We are excited about the addition of Northwest Medical to our portfolio, and we believe our depth of medical industry contacts can help the company further expand its existing markets," said Michael Jones, Principal at Corbel Capital Partners.  "Pacific Mercantile Bank's experience and skill in working with capital providers helped them structure a complex financial solution that met the unique needs of both our private equity group and Northwest Medical.  Pacific Mercantile Bank's flexibility and responsiveness helped us to close in a very efficient manner and enabled us to quickly begin working with the Northwest Medical team to capitalize on new growth opportunities."

"It was a pleasure to work with Corbel Capital Partners on this transaction," said Rob Parks, Senior Vice President at Pacific Mercantile Bank.  "The financial solution that we were able to structure enabled the recapitalization of Northwest Medical, while also providing for the company's ongoing working capital needs.  We are also utilizing our propriety Horizon Analytics® to provide ongoing advice and guidance to help the company reach its financial goals."
