Ellen CassidyMedical Director
Hi, I am Ellen Cassidy. I am a board-certified family practice physician who has practiced medicine for over twenty years. For the past eight years, I have pursued a particular interest in geriatric medicine, including completing rigorous additional training to become a certified medical director of skilled nursing facilities. I currently serve as medical director and attending physician at Genesis Spa Creek in Annapolis, and medical director at Corsica Hills in Centerville.
In these roles, I have been proud to see first-hand the dedication Genesis Healthcare has shown to patient and staff safety during the coronavirus pandemic. As a nationwide leader providing both short term rehabilitative and long-term care, Genesis has been able to secure personal protective equipment (PPE) and contract with labs for Covid-19 virus testing for staff and patients. Moreover, the nurses, nurse aides, therapists, and all of the other ancillary front-line workers have never wavered in their commitment to our patients.
Throughout the pandemic, Genesis has followed strict CDC guidelines for patient safety. In fact, in many cases, it has even exceeded those promulgated by the CDC. We at Spa Creek and Corsica Hills have been diligent in practicing infection control to protect our patients.
In closing, I am proud to serve as a medical director working with staff who have bravely served and continue to serve our patients through a once-in-a-lifetime pandemic.

Letter of recognition - Corsica Hills, Centreville, MD
Good day, Ladies and Gentlemen,
I am the daughter of one of your recent Transitional Care patients, William P. B. My day was very excited to have the opportunity to participate in rehabilitation at Corsica Hills in Centreville, MD after his hospital admission.
During his stay, Dad's physical health declined. He was placed on Pallative Care and peacefully passed into heaven on 05 August 2019.
Throughout Dad's stay at Corsica Hills, numerous people entered his life as well and my brothers and mine. We were all welcomed to this "home away from home" and received exceptional care.
Below is a short (and, I am sure, incomplete) list of Dad's treasured angels who honored him and made his short stay at Corsica Hills comfortable - especially at the end of his earthly life.
Nurse practitioner: Stephanie Joy
Nurses: Holly, Tracy, Tom, Shuyen
Nurses aides: Debbie, Vincent, Charlotte, Stephanie
Social work: Carolyn
Kitchen: Gregory "Duece"
The rehab department
My brothers and I are eternally grateful for Corsica Hills and the people who abundantly gave their love, service, devotion, and outstanding healthcare to our dad. You will always be fondly remembered.
Sincerely, Aimee B. L (and brothers Dave B. and Rick B.)
The staff that I have had interactions with are absolutely awesome. Everybody is friendly, helpful and they always have a smile on their face. This positive attitude goes a long way for the patient. The nurses on my wing are so great. Always helping you and always with a smile. You should be proud of all the staff that makes up Corsica Hills. Please relay my thanks to all that collectively make this facility outstanding.
Kindness and Quality Care
Thank you for the wonderful care you provided for Jerry W. (Pappy) and our family. You all helped make a difficult time so much easier to bear. We will always remember your kindness and quality care.
- Love, The W. Family

JoAnn M. admitted to Corsical Hills Center on 5/8/2020. She was Covid-19 positive and resolved on 6/17/2020. She continues with her therapy, with the ultimate goal to discharge home.
If I ever need to, I will go back to Corsica Hills Center
I was at another nursing and rehab center. I had my son contact Corsica Hills Center to see if they had a bed and what I had to do for me to go to their center. On September 24,2020 I was admitted to Corsica Hills Center in Centerville, MD. I went there for therapy and nursing care after I had a fall that resulted in a right hip fracture.
I was weight-bearing as tolerated so I needed therapy to help me get back to walking. The day I was admitted to a private room it was nice and clean when I arrived. Everyone who came in my room had their personal protective equipment on. Every time they came into my room they were nice and treated me well. I felt safe at Corsica Hills Center and also did not think about Coronavirus at all.
I discharged home on October 7,2020. I know if I ever need to go back to a Nursing and Rehab Center, I will go back to Corscia Hills Center in Centerville, MD.
