Paul D. Vitale, MPA, FACHE

President, CEO, and PDV Executive Consultant

Paul D. Vitale is a visionary executive in healthcare with an impressive track record in strategic growth and alliances. He has had extensive experience across the continuum of care in both the non-profit and for-profit sectors. He is currently the President and CEO of PDV Health, a multifaceted consulting firm providing next level of service through experience and innovation.  Paul is currently in the process of spearheading the turnaround of an NYC based Medical Staffing & Homecare Company which has gone from an annual loss to a positive EBITDA and a gross revenue increase from $23 million to $27 million in the last 8 month of 2022.  PDV Health is also developing the strategic plan for a National PACE startup and overseeing a series of physician practice conversions and consolidations in preparation for aquisition. 

PDV Health delivers expertise in healthcare policy and operations including ambulatory care / hospital & FQHC, homecare and managed care, hospital operations, business development, population health strategy, coaching and training, and mergers and acquisitions.

In his prior role at Brightpoint Health, a multifaceted outpatient primary care network and care management organization serving 60,000 vulnerable New Yorkers, Vitale led the organization to unprecedented growth–increasing revenues from $20 million to over $130 million in 10 years. He propelled the transition of the clinics to FQHC status, secured patient-centered medical home Level 3 designations, and obtained Article 31 and 822 licenses. Additionally, Vitale has overseen several highly successful mergers and affiliations and has rescued numerous failing organizations. To accelerate the growth of start-up Health Centers, he integrated over 10 large private physician practices, adding 30,000 patients and $7 million in revenue in less than 2 years. He is also Chairman of the board of a managed care organization of over 600K members and is extremely involved in operational planning. His total portfolio is comprised of over $1 billion, including the recent merger.

Paul spearheaded a successful effort to align with a well-capitalized healthcare organization to ensure continued growth and to achieve the scale needed in value-based payment. In December 2018 he became the President of a merged entity with a combined $350,000 million in revenues and serving 200,000 patients throughout New York City, Long Island, and upstate New York.  This merger created the largest FQHC in the United States.
