Migrant services company DocGo wants to use its multimillion-dollar deal with City Hall to land a massive $4 billion deal with the government.
CEO Anthony Capone said at a Trade Conference in Boston Last month, DocGo’s $432 million emergency deal with the Big Apple announced “credibility” to champion the federal agreement to provide medical services to migrants.
“Now we’re one of the largest care providers for asylum seekers in the country,” Capone said at Canaccord Genuity’s 43rd Annual Growth Conference in August. “It gives us tremendous credibility. And we have references from the city that handles the largest volume.”
“Our application is much stronger,” Capone said of the for-profit company.
DocGo was awarded an emergency contract by Mayor Eric Adam’s administration in March to organize food, medical care and shelter for migrants, but recently came under scrutiny after complaints of abuse were received by the governor’s office last month.
Gov. Kathy Hochul ordered a review of the anti-competitive contract and the Attorney General opened an investigation into the claims.
