Director, Capital Investment, New York State

Organization Overview

The Primary Care Development Corporation (PCDC) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to expanding access to quality primary care to improve the health of families and communities, reduce disparities and lower healthcare costs. PCDC was founded in 1993 to address a critical lack of access to primary care in New York City’s underserved communities, and has since expanded its reach and services throughout New York and across the United States.

The organization has three primary operating divisions: the Capital Investment group, the Performance Improvement Practice, and the Public Affairs and Policy division. These three operating divisions collaborate closely to create and maintain a synergy that is directly responsible for PCDC’s leadership position in the market and industry. PCDC is governed by a distinguished 24 member Board of Directors and receives strategy and policy advice from an equally distinguished 14 member Leadership Advisory Council.

The Capital Investment group at PCDC is one of the leading non-profit, federally-certified Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFI) in the US. As the first CDFI in the country specializing in primary care financing for low-income communities, PCDC provides capital to expand practices, build new facilities, and upgrade systems, and equipment, leading to better services for more patients. PCDC’s financing programs cover all stages of health center development, and include loans, tax-exempt bond and New Market Tax Credit financing. PCDC has financed over 100 health care projects to-date, providing and leveraging over $750 million in development costs. PCDC’s portfolio consists of $60 million in loan and bond investments and $92 million in NMTC, and $50 million in portfolios managed on behalf of third parties.
