Proven Fiscal Responsibility
As New York State’s only equity-based model, Peconic Landing is the most heavily regulated CCRC statewide. This oversight helps contribute to our strong fiscal standing and premier quality of care. As a Lifecare community providing long-term care, Peconic Landing is subject to all laws and regulations set forth by the New York State Department of Health in association with the New York State Continuing Care Retirement Community Council. The cooperative ownership component of the community is governed through the New York State Attorney General’s Office while the insurance component of the Lifecare contract is overseen by the New York State Department of Financial Services, which approves all monthly service fees and purchase prices.
Peconic Landing enjoys the confidence of a stable BBB– Fitch investment grade rating. Holding a Fitch rating helps the organization with financial investments geared towards strategic growth for the future. A proven asset, the rating helped Peconic Landing to receive a favorable interest rate on bonds issued for the community’s most recent expansion in 2016. Just over 100 of the nation’s nearly 2,000 communities have earned an investment grade rating. Of New York State’s 12 Continuing Care Retirement Communities, just 5 communities have earned an investment grade rating. In 2016, Fitch reaffirmed Peconic Landing’s rating, noting that once expansion efforts have stabilized, the added revenues, coupled with Peconic Landing’s already solid balance sheet and consistent operating profile, could lead to positive rating pressure.
