Dear Patients, Residents and Families
Thank you for entrusting Genesis HealthCare to care for your loved one.
The health and safety of our patients, residents, and staff guide every decision we make, even the difficult ones. On August 2, 2021, to protect those who are living and working in our facilities, we announced a universal COVID-19 vaccination requirement for our employees, care partners, and onsite vendors. The vast majority of our patients and residents had already been vaccinated. However, despite voluntary staff vaccination rates that were higher than the industry average, the rapidly growing spread of the Delta variant caused us too much concern. As you well know, older adults and those with comorbidities are at the greatest risk of severe outcomes from COVID-19 infection. Vaccination is one of the best tools available to us to create the safest environment for those in our care.read more
