Genesis HealthCare Honors Rachel Brown as Compassionate Caregiver of the Year in its DE/MD/VA Market

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

Salisbury, MD - October, 18, 2022 - Genesis HealthCare, a national post-acute care provider, today announced that Rachel Brown, a Certified Occupational Therapist Assistant at Salisbury Rehab & Nursing Center in Salisbury, MD, has been selected as the Compassionate Caregiver of the Year (CCOY) in its Delaware/ Maryland/ Virginia (DE/MD/VA) market. Rachel has been with the organization since 2008.

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, Rachel is loving, caring, and compassionate to all her patients, residents and colleagues at Salisbury Rehab & Nursing Center. She has selflessly initiated many projects to assist others in need, and is always available and willing to assist in any capacity. In fact, Rachel often volunteers to work extra hours every week to assist the center or even other affiliated centers.

“Rachel’s approach to care strongly embodies the center’s core values,” states Tim Davis, Market President for Genesis’ DE/MD/VA market. “She’s loved and admired by her patients as well as staff. Salisbury Rehab & Nursing Center is so lucky to have her on the team.”

Rachel was selected as the market-level CCOY from among all staff in 12 Genesis-affiliated centers in Delaware, Maryland and Virginia. 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 national CCOY recipient to the Schwartz Center to be considered for that organization’s 2023 National Compassionate Caregiver of the Year award.
