Our Leadership Team

Karen Hoffman
Center Executive Director

Karen has been the Administrator of North Cape Center since its opening in 1995.  She thinks of each of her 150 employees as a family, who are working together for the common goal of providing quality care to our patients.  You may find Karen each morning assisting with the breakfast buffet, and taking the time to introduce herself to each patient.  Nursing, social services and rehab keep her up to date on the status of patients, so she knows each patient as an individual.  After graduating with a Bachelor's Degree in Social Work from College Misericordia, Karen started her career as a Residential Advisor for an adult residence group home.  In 1987 she started her career with Genesis HealthCare as a Social Worker at our Fairview Bethleham Pike Center.  Karen has held other positions at genesis including: Admissions Director, Human Resource Manager and as Assistant Administrator.  After receiving her Administrator's license in 1989, she became the Administrator of our Burlington Woods Center. In 1995, Karen was named Administrator of the newly opened North Cape Center.
