Title: Vice President, Senior Credit Officer
Firm: Moody’s Investors Service
Daniel Steingart has served as vice president and senior credit officer focusing on non-for profit hospital credits at Moody’s Investors Service for the last 11 years. He is the lead analyst on Mayo Clinic, Partners Healthcare System, Stanford University Hospital and Cedars Sinai Medical Center.
He has authored all of Moody’s research on developments surrounding the Affordable Care Act, its implications on credit and legislative efforts to repeal the landmark legislation.
Steingart has also taken a leadership role on the analysis of GO hospital districts which he described as an interesting hybrid because the security on their debt is GO on a taxing district but they operate hospitals and are subject to the same enterprise risks as non-for profits.
Steingart joined the Moody’s team straight out of Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs graduate school. It is his first job in the muni space. Before that he spent two years at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, a Washington D.C. based think tank.
Steingart spent a couple of years abroad volunteering. He volunteered in St Petersburg with the Jewish community and he also spent some time working in Israel where he was program coordinator for recent college grads to come and study and volunteer in a variety of capacities. He considers himself a music buff who is into everything classical along with more esoteric genres of music.
