In 1869, the predecessors of Genesis Health System gave birth to the third community hospital west of the Mississippi. More than 150 years later, we continue to grow, building relationships with generations of families, contributing to the community, broadening services throughout the Quad Cities region, and bringing new heights of excellence in health care.

Genesis Health System serves a 17-county, bi-state region of the Quad Cities metropolitan area and the surrounding communities of Iowa and Illinois. But when it comes to clinical capabilities and quality, we exceed those geographical limits. We have earned distinction as a national Top 15 Health System in 2020. As part of our ongoing patient safety journey, we achieved zero serious safety events in fiscal years 2017, 2019 and 2020 to be in the top 1 percent of the nation for patient safety.

Meanwhile, as we grow, we never forget our mission to deliver compassionate, quality health services to all those in need. Over time, that has transcended into a very personal bond with the communities we serve. We remain the Quad Cities' only locally owned and operated regional health care system. That longstanding relationship brings our patients the assurance that health care decisions impacting our area are made by people who live and work in the same region that they do.
