Who We Are

Who We Are

Values and mission statements are only commendable goals until they captivate the hearts and hands of extraordinary individuals who give them life. Then they become world changing actions. Genesis celebrates our extraordinary employees who demonstrate our core values in service to our patients and our community.

Genesis employees have held the hand of a dying man at the scene of an accident, grieved with a patient's family member, served the underserved, lived a dream with an aging veteran, and brought new life into the world in a challenging environment.

We want to share these stories of employees who have demonstrated the Genesis values of safety, interity, compassion, accountability, respect and excellence. Their actions help us tell the story of Who We Are as an organization.

We will be updating this space with new stories. Click the link below, or see below to read about Genesis values that make us Who We Are. We hope you enjoy this multi-media recognition of special people and their special acts.
