Message from the Executive Director

Welcome to our Genesis Health Alliance website.  I am happy that you have paid us a visit.

J. D LeClere, Genesis Health Alliance Executive Director

Genesis is all about networking and cooperatively seeking out new opportunities as a group of Tri-State regional hospitals.  I am proud to be working directly for and with the leaders of these twenty not-for-profit hospitals whose top priorities are to deliver the highest quality and the most cost effective healthcare to their respective communities.

We have worked to provide regional group purchasing contracts for our hospital members as well as their active medical staff physicians.  Our clinical and professional managers continue to network in order to learn from each other and to share their individual knowledge with their peers.  Professional consultants are also frequently engaged as guest speakers.

In 2006 we designed and launched a network-wide award winning free diabetic screening program with the cooperation of the American Diabetes Association.  A second such program was launched in the beginning of 2008 which was focused on the screening and education of individuals with lower extremity peripheral arterial disease (P.A.D.)  Genesis also launched its Childhood Obesity Awareness Initiative leading up to the 2010 - 2011 school year.  The goal of this initiative was to raise awareness of the dangers of childhood obesity, and to encourage good eating habits and physical fitness beginning at an early age.  These programs have now evolved into our family of director level networking groups and continue to provide knowledge-based support for individual hospital studies.

It continues to be exciting, enjoyable, and yes, rewarding to work with such a diverse yet focused group of professionals in order to reach our mutual goals.

Please contact our office if we can further assist you in any way.

Sincerely,


J.D. LeClere
Executive Director
