Coronavirus UpdateView All Updates
It is hard to believe that the holiday season is fast approaching. We know that spending the holiday season with friends and family is always important, especially this time of year. That’s why we are working hard to make it as special as possible despite the ongoing pandemic.
As we plan for this year’s fall and winter holiday celebrations, safety remains our primary focus as we work to protect your loved ones, our staff, and families. This year we will all be celebrating differently as celebrations will not be in large gatherings. Unfortunately we will not be able to offer opportunities for families to share meals within the Center with loved ones or large resident and family gatherings. As recommended by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), a federal regulatory agency, we also strongly discourage resident Leaves of Absence, to protect both the resident who might be exposed to coronavirus when outside the Center, as well as all other residents when somebody returns from a leave of absence. read more

Reshma Modi,Medical Director
I am the medical director at Genesis Waugh Chapel and have been working with Genesis facilities for the last eight years. I have witnessed first-hand, the extraordinary support and guidance provided by their corporate leadership throughout the years and especially during these challenging times. The pandemic has turned the world upside down but through this steady corporate assistance, Genesis Waugh Chapel has procured enough PPE and has been able to obtain timely COVID testing to keep patients safe. The center leadership on site has done a phenomenal job with infection control practices through repeated staff education. All patients are screened frequently and staff are regularly tested on proper infection control to keep patients protected. These types of structured, rigorous processes implemented and designed for patient safety have allowed the facility to be designated as a COVID regional center. COVID patients from around the area, as far as Delaware, are admitted to a designated unit at Waugh Chapel with nurses experienced in COVID care. The medical teams are also in the building most of the week and communicate frequently with nursing to provide the best possible treatments. Through strict infection control policies, frequent testing and an abundance of PPE, I am confident that patients who need short term rehab will be safe at Genesis Waugh Chapel.

Courteous, efficient and helpful
When I first walked in I thought I was at the Hilton Hotel! The food is good, therapy is wonderful, and you can't meet a stranger in here. All staff is courteous, efficient and helpful.
Nothing but pleasant experiences
I have had nothing but pleasant and positive experiences with all the staff. I have so many that have gone above and beyond to help me and are so very pleasant that I don't have enough room to write all their names. Phillip, my primary therapist, has me down to a quad cane and I can walk stairs! Vida, my aide, is an angel from heaven since day one. We laugh and kid with each other, I call her Mama. There are exceptional nurses here. Brittany, Monica and Julie always get my meds correct and go the extra mile. Alice, the housekeeper, is a pure delight. Isn't it funny the situations life puts you in and you meet wonderful people you not have otherwise met, and Holly, on her day off, brought in a vase for some flowers that were delivered to me, because no one else could find one.
Professional and caring staff
I have an excellent, professional and kind nursing staff. They are knowledgeable nurses. I would give them a 90% score, and the aides are the same. The physical therapists are the best in my experience with the facilities and I would give them an A. I would recommend this facility.
