Marc entered the skilled nursing industry in 1993, at the onset of the national “sub-acute” care movement. Medicare cost report appeals were a key component of a successful short-term rehabilitation program, and Zimmet & Company (the precursor to ZHSG) quickly emerged as a national leader in the space. As skilled nursing facilities transitioned to prospective-payment in the late 1990s, Mr. Zimmet applied his experience from New York State’s participation in the Nursing Home Case-Mix & Quality Demonstration project to develop early reimbursement-compliance management strategies for his clients. He now advises the firm’s diverse client base as the industry faces comprehensive payment and market reform.
In addition to providers, Marc advises industry trade associations, equity investors and lenders, and offers expert witness support in defense of healthcare providers.
Mr. Zimmet is also the founder and Managing Member of Z capital, LLC, the firm’s investment vehicle, with current positions in companies that provide care management technologies, Medicare Special Needs Plan solutions, outsourced case management and hospice care.
Most recently, Marc aligned Zimmet Healthcare with Greystone, a real estate lending, investment and advisory company. He joined as a Managing Director in Greystone’s healthcare lending group in a dual role, as he continues to lead ZHSG and expand the firm’s consulting solutions.
Mr. Zimmet is an active member of many state and national industry associations, and lectures extensively on regulatory and market issues shaping post-acute care. He serves on the Board of Directors of several healthcare provider and ancillary support companies. Marc holds a degree in CPA Accounting from Syracuse University and an MBA in Healthcare Administration from the Zicklin School of Business / Mount Sinai School of Medicine.
