History of Genesis HealthCare

Based in Kennett Square, PA, Genesis Healthcare operates over 500 short and long-term rehabilitation care facilities across the country. The company was founded in 1985 as Genesis Health Ventures and grew by acquiring nursing homes, rehabilitation therapy centers, diagnostic testing labs, and pharmacies. Following a period of internal restructuring, Genesis Health Ventures became Genesis HealthCare in 2007. After a merger with Skilled Healthcare Group, Inc. in 2015, the newly combined conglomerate’s profits skyrocketed to over $30 billion.

Genesis HealthCare is an umbrella company with many subsidiaries and divisions, including Genesis Rehab Services, Genesis Elder Care, and Genesis Physicians Services. There are roughly 40 Genesis-affiliated facilities in Maryland, including Salisbury Rehabilitation and Nursing Center, Loch Raven Center, and Waldorf Center.

Genesis HealthCare in the News

The Genesis HealthCare chain received widespread criticism in January 2021 when it was revealed that the company awarded its CEO over $5 million in bonuses, even as its profits collapsed and Genesis facility residents were dying from the Covid-19 virus. George Hager Jr., the longtime CEO of Genesis HealthCare, reportedly received the bonus in October 2020, less than a month before he stated in a financial summary that Covid-19 “continues to have a significant adverse impact on the company’s revenues and expenses.” And during the summer of 2020, Hager was reprimanded by an investigatory House panel for the surge in Covid-19 deaths at Genesis HealthCare-operated facilities. According to outbreak reports, nearly 3,000 residents of Genesis-run facilities died from Covid-19 by December 2020. Data acquired by the Washington Post revealed that Genesis nursing homes did not obtain adequate levels of personal protective equipment until November 2020, after Hager’s bonus had been approved. While he resigned as CEO in early 2021, the company continued to experience financial difficulties and announced plans for a “strategic restructuring in March 2021.
