SMC To Manage Genesis Home Health Care
Samaritan Medical Center announced Friday that it will be entering into an agreement to manage Genesis Home Health Care.
SMC said the agreement will remain in place until a final purchase agreement and certificate of need is approved by the New York State Department of Health, when the home healthcare agency will become a Samaritan corporation.
Until Thursday, the Genesis Home Health Care offices were the last remaining tenant in the Mercy building at 218 Stone Street.
The office was relocated to 199 Pratt Street, an office building on Samaritan's main campus in Watertown.
The agency is still accepting new clients. The staff and office phone number (782-0415) remain the same.
SMC expects that the process to acquire the home health agency will take up to a year.
