Nominate Someone for
Community Service Awards

Do you know someone who has made a significant contribution to our community through volunteer service? If so, nominate the person you’re thinking about for the Genesis Community Service Award.

The award recognizes someone who has made the world a better place by volunteering. The Genesis Foundation recognizes someone each year – someone like Bud and Audrey St. Clair – last year’s recipients pictured here.

Take the opportunity to nominate someone who’s made a difference in our area. The nomination form is due back to the Genesis Foundation office by Monday, Aug. 3.

The ED has 47 treatment rooms, including three state-of-the-art trauma rooms. There's also a full-service major medical suite and specialized area for psychiatric and OB/GYN patients.

We've Moved

After years of planning and more than two years of construction, your new Genesis Hospital is now fully open. On the morning of June 27, we moved all patients and services from Genesis-Good Samaritan Hospital to the new Genesis hospital. All patients and services were moved, and Good Samaritan will no longer accept patients.

The new Genesis Hospital is located at 2951 Maple Ave. You can learn more about your new Genesis Hospital by clicking on the button below or calling (740) 454-4000.
