Genesis Integrated Health Network (GIHN)

Genesis HealthCare System is the largest health system in Southeastern Ohio with over 5,500 covered lives through our self-insured health plan. Through an extraordinary approach to care delivery, Genesis will now be offering an integrated healthcare network to our employees and their covered dependents. Combining our existing health plan with an exclusive network of high-performing clinicians will provide our members with a more affordable, more accessible and more coordinated approach to health and wellness.

What is GIHN?

GIHN is a selective partnership of physicians, advanced practice providers, community health providers and local facilities working collaboratively to deliver evidence-based care, improve quality, reduce cost and enhance coordination of care. Our primary focus is to manage the delivery of high-quality, cost-effective and patient-centered care for Genesis’ covered lives through the Genesis Clinically Integrated Network (GIHN).


Beginning in January 2023, Genesis HealthCare System will provide a fully integrated health network to over 5,500 lives with a commitment to reducing costs and improving health and wellness. By joining the GIHN, healthcare providers will have access to enhanced patient data and HIM services. With a reduction in the fragmentation of care, our providers will be able to help our members prevent disease and stay healthy. Through our integrated network, clinicians are rewarded for improving quality and promoting preventive wellness.
