In honor of National Hospital Week, Genesis held it's annual Service Awards Banquet for 466 employees who are celebrating employment anniversaries.
"It's the one time of year that we have an opportunity to recognize all of the folks at Genesis who have been working here for a lot of years and it's the one time of year we get together and have a lot of fun," said Matthew Perry, CEO & President of Genesis Heathcare System.
The anniversaries are measured in five-year increments from 5 to 45 years and depending on the length of service, employees were able to choose a gift. Michelle Snider, who is a Patient Experience Consultant at Genesis, says everyday of her 45 of working at Genesis has been rewarding.
"It's overwhelming honestly and you realize very quickly that you couldn't do it without your whole team," said Snider.
Snider says she looks forward to the new building at the Bethesda Campus.
