HCN yields 4.6% and issued $750 Million in unsecured senior debt that priced at 4.009%.

Shoot, why not issue $2 billion in notes and buy back the 17,000,000 shares issued a few months ago at around $74 per share for the current price of $70.50? Would save around $6 million a year in dividend payments versus interest payments.
