Executive Director, Premier HealthCare
Motivated to refocus services to create and maintain a variable healthcare system for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD), Hope Levy has served as the Executive Director of Premier HealthCare, a YAI affiliate, since 2017. Thanks to her efforts to overhaul long-established systems, she took Premier to a profitable status in 2019. For more than 20 years, Hope has held increasingly senior roles in the I/DD field. Before joining Premier, she served as the Senior Director of Business Development and Government Relations at YAI. Throughout her career, she has played a crucial role in expanding early intervention, Article 16 services, Article 28 clinics, and has provided technical assistance to more than 150 I/DD nonprofit agencies throughout New York City. Hope earned her Master of Social Work from New York University.
