Genesis & New Lexington Schools Workforce Development

Workforce Development

Genesis HealthCare System and New Lexington Schools Workforce Development are partnering to remove employment barriers. A new agreement between the two entities enables students 16 years and older to receive hands-on training in a clinical setting for in-demand healthcare careers. Opportunities include obtaining a phlebotomy license, a State Tested Nursing Assistant (STNA) certification or a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) license before students graduate high school. Previously, students had to be 18 years old before starting clinicals which prevented most high school students from participating in the training and delayed their ability to enter the workforce.  

With a national shortage of healthcare workers, the partnership will decrease the time it takes for high school students to enter the healthcare workforce. 

Compassion Gift Box Program 2023

This program, conducted annually by the Genesis Mission Champions Leadership Team, enables Genesis staff to assist people in need during the holidays. This year our employees donated gifts to help 47 families provide toys for their children. 120 children in total received gifts. 5 families with newborns received essential items. 92 were sponsored by our employees and departments, and 28 received gifts bought with donated funds. Over $5,500 was donated by our physicians, board members, and employees to help the cause. These gifts included much-needed clothing and shoes for school and winter wear for the cold months. Many gifts also supported the future career goals of these children, including interests in veterinary medicine, cosmetology and culinary school.
