The CEO of the company charged for providing food and services to migrants in Albany visited a hotel where many are staying.

Last week, Albany County officials said DocGo was providing substandard care and wasn’t communicating with them. The company only invited NewsChannel 13 as the CEO visited Albany County.

On Monday, CEO Anthony Capone attended a lunch event at the SureStay on Wolf Road, where the company is providing services to migrants. He pledged to offer several choices for more culturally sensitive food, including halal and Hispanic options.

“The food vendors that they choose, the food vendors that they would like, are the ones that they are now going to get on a daily basis.” Capone said.

Monday, Local restaurant Encebollados “El Idolo” was invited to bring Ecuadorian cuisine.

Last week, local nonprofits, including Capital District Latinos, told NewsChannel 13 they were using their small budget to provide necessary services to local migrants. Capone said the company aims to partner with several of them to provide funding.

“I was just working with a food pantry here and figuring out how we have the ability to fund that food pantry,” Capone said. He went on to say “The next step is to both make sure these services are improved and that they’re improved via these nonprofits, but even more importantly is making sure these people can become self-sustaining, contributing members of our society.”
