BOK Financial has hired a veteran health care banker from Synovus.

Jim Thompson will be senior vice president and director of senior housing investments in the health care banking division of the $38 billion-asset BOK, which is based in Tulsa, Okla.

“Adding Jim to an existing team that has had tremendous success in making BOK Financial a nationally recognized name in health care banking will further strengthen this area of growing opportunity for the organization,” Brad Vincent, director of health care banking, said in a news release Thursday.

Thompson had worked for Synovus, of Columbus, Ga., for six years in its senior housing and health care lending group. His responsibilities are being dispersed within the company, a Synovus spokesman said.

He previously worked for the now-defunct Capmark Finance (formerly GMAC Commercial Mortgage), where he co-managed a $1 billion portfolio of senior housing and skilled nursing loans. Thompson led the senior housing and long-term care lending efforts at Colonial Bank in Montgomery, Ala., before joining Capmark in 1998.

BOK operates across eight states as Bank of Albuquerque in New Mexico; Bank of Arkansas; Bank of Oklahoma; Bank of Texas; BOK Financial in Colorado and Arizona; and Mobank in Kansas and Missouri. It also has limited-purpose offices in Nebraska, Wisconsin and Connecticut.
