NEW YORK, Feb. 07, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Greystone, a real estate lending, investment and advisory company, today announced that Marc Zimmet has joined as a Managing Director in the Healthcare lending group. Mr. Zimmet is the founder of Zimmet Healthcare Services Group, LLC, a leading reimbursement-compliance & market intelligence consultancy serving the post-acute care industry.
In his new role at Greystone, Mr. Zimmet will provide specialized advisory services to Greystone clients, while also creating new lending and development opportunities for ZHSG’s diverse client base. Mr. Zimmet will hold dual roles, as he will remain CEO of Zimmet Healthcare and its related ancillary companies.
“When considering a provider’s entire portfolio, assessing the full spectrum of financial risks and opportunities is critical, especially as investors enter new markets,” said Mr. Zimmet. “Healthcare is a local business; complex regulatory/reimbursement changes and rapidly evolving market dynamics threaten provider viability and exacerbate the financing burden. Our goal is to create efficiencies in both operations and debt service, while helping operators unlock the full potential of their investments. I am thrilled to combine the resources of my firm with the Greystone team at such an integral juncture in healthcare. This relationship will resonate throughout the industry as providers position themselves for regulatory and market reform.”
In 2017, Greystone originated over $1 billion in healthcare loans, primarily utilizing the FHA and Bridge lending platforms. Greystone’s expertise in the healthcare sector includes HUD-insured loans, bridge and mezzanine loans, preferred equity, sale leaseback, Agency financing, and comprehensive underwriting capabilities serving some of the largest skilled nursing providers in the U.S.
Zimmet Healthcare Services Group LLC, founded in 1993, is a leading provider of reimbursement / compliance, performance analytics and market strategy support to nearly 2,000 post-acute care providers and industry stakeholders. The firm’s related companies offer outsourced management and technology solutions to improve quality and efficiency.
Mr. Zimmet is an active member of multiple state and national industry associations, and serves on the Board of Directors of several healthcare provider and ancillary support companies. He holds an Accounting degree from Syracuse University and an MBA in Healthcare Administration from the Zicklin School of Business / Mount Sinai School of Medicine.
