Genesis HealthCare Honors Susan Braz as Compassionate Caregiver of the Year in its Rhode Island/Southern Massachusetts Market

Annual recognition program is modeled after the Schwartz Center for Compassionate Care’s national award for healthcare professionals.

Warren, RI - October, 18, 2022 - Genesis HealthCare, a national post-acute care provider, today announced that Susan Braz, Unit Manager and Licensed Practical Nurse at Warren Center in Warren, RI, has been selected as the Compassionate Caregiver of the Year (CCOY) in its Rhode Island/Southern Massachusetts market. Susan has been with the organization since 2012.

Modeled after the Schwartz Center for Compassionate Care's national program, Genesis HealthCare sponsors an annual recognition program that provides a meaningful way for Genesis-affiliated centers to recognize and celebrate staff members who go above and beyond the standard of compassionate care. Staff, residents, and residents’ families are all invited to nominate a member of the team who demonstrates compassion in an exceptional way.

According to her nomination, Susan provides residents, families with emotional support in a straightforward, honest manner. Despite often difficult conversations, she uses simple language and connects with the families on a personal level. Sue is also extremely conscientious.  She will not leave at the end of her shift until she has checked in with all staff members to make sure they are all set. And if someone is late to their shift, she will roll up her sleeves and get the job done until they arrive. She is an example of a great leader.

“Susan makes a difference in the lives of all patients and residents every day. She is admired by residents and staff alike, filling ongoing needs and always ensuring the highest quality of care at Warren Center. The team thanks Susan for her ongoing contributions to her community. Warren Center is lucky to have her on the team,” states Trevor Kinney, Market President for Rhode Island/Southern Massachusetts.

Susan was selected as the market-level CCOY from among all staff in 15 Genesis-affiliated centers in Rhode Island and Southern Massachusetts. She is now eligible for Genesis’ company-wide Compassionate Caregiver of the Year award, which will be selected from among its other market-level recipients later this month. Genesis will formally nominate its company-wide CCOY recipient to the Schwartz Center to be considered for that organization’s 2023 National Compassionate Caregiver of the Year award.
