For 150 years, we've been in this together. Whether it's delivering your first child or comforting a loved one through grief's sorrow, we've been together for life's most consequential moments. Our history stretches into the roots of Quad Cities; but, most importantly, our roots are shared by those that live within our community today.
Our story begins with the same mission that drives us today: to provide compassionate, quality health services to all those in need. That mission compelled the Sisters of Mercy to open a Davenport hospital in 1869; the mission has driven communities across the Quad Cities to open hospitals in DeWitt, Silvis, and Aledo.
Genesis exists to provide compassionate, quality health services to all those in need.
For 150 years, we've partnered together to make our community a better, healthier place. We want to celebrate that partnership.
That's why throughout 2019, Genesis will host several public events in recognition of our 150th anniversary. Because you're such an important part of our story, we hope you'll join us.
