Genesis Post Acute Care Adds Assisted Living Communities
Genesis Post Acute Services has expanded the network of area preferred providers to include assisted living and independent living communities.
The Genesis Preferred Provider Network is a collaboration between Genesis and a network of skilled nursing facilities; in-home support service providers; medical homecare providers (Genesis Visiting Nurses); hospice providers; and now, assisted living and independent living communities.
New partners of the Genesis Preferred Provider Network include Park Vista Retirement Living, East Moline; Senior Star at Elmore Place, Davenport; and, Ridgecrest Retirement Village, Davenport.
Partners in the network have enhanced, seamless access to Genesis services, including rehabilitation, home health, hospice and palliative care, nurse practitioners available on-site, integrated care management and the largest primary care provider network in the region.
“The network of providers aligned with Genesis services improve the continuity of service delivery and better meet the needs of our mutual customers and their families,’’ said Glen Roebuck, executive director of Genesis Post Acute Services. “The network helps identify and remove barriers to transitions of care while capitalizing on individual strengths and resources.
“One of the greatest benefits for customers and their families is the availability of Genesis nurse practitioners on-site within partner organizations. This allows us to respond more quickly to a change in someone’s health status. The goals will be to reduce emergency department visits, decrease unplanned hospitalizations, and provide more efficient transitions of necessary care.
“Our partnership with high quality providers within the market gives our customers and their families the assurance and confidence a team of providers across the Quad Cities has come together to coordinate the best possible care and services.’’
Roebuck said Genesis Preferred Provider Network is continuing to work with possible partners in the region. Visit www.genesishealth.com/seniorservices to learn more about the array of medical and non-medical services now available.
