HOSPITAL CAMPUSES Genesis Medical Center, Davenport

Genesis Medical Center, DeWitt

Genesis Medical Center, Davenport and its predecessor hospitals have provided compassionate, quality health care since 1869. The 502-bed medical center serves the community from two hospital campuses – located on East Rusholme Street and West Central Park Avenue – and outpatient facilities located throughout the community.

Genesis Medical Center, DeWitt, a 13-bed hospital with a staff of nearly 200, has served DeWitt and surrounding communities since 1952. Throughout the years, the hospital has successfully responded to a growing population and an evolving health care delivery system. A 1997 affiliation with Genesis and a $7 million building project in 2000 have positioned the hospital to exist far into the future, bringing experienced staff and state-of-the-art technology that is far ahead of most small hospitals.

Since 2005, Genesis Medical Center, Davenport has carried the prestigious Magnet designation for excellence in nursing services from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). It was the first and only hospital in the Quad Cities and just the fourth in Iowa to achieve such a status. In 2010, it became the first in the Quad Cities and one of only 3 percent of U.S. hospitals to earn Magnet re-designation. Research shows that patients at Magnet hospitals are significantly more satisfied with their care and have better outcomes. Among its other distinctions, the hospital boasts the Iowa Quad Cities’ most advanced trauma program; a nationally recognized Genesis Diabetes Care Center; the area’s first Joint Commission Certified Primary Stroke Center; neurosurgical care; accredited brain injury programs; Iowa’s largest Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Program; and, the region’s most advanced Neonatal Intensive Care Unit thanks to a unique partnership with University of Iowa Children’s Hospital in Iowa City. The Genesis Cancer Care Institute offers the latest cancer-fighting technology and extensive support services for patients and has been recognized by the Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons. With the Genesis Heart Institute as the focal point for the health system’s heart program, Genesis also has received top quality rankings from The Society of Thoracic Surgeons and United Healthcare and is a national leader in heart attack response times. In 2010, Genesis Medical Center, Davenport was named one of the nation’s Top 50 Cardiovascular Hospitals by Thomson Reuters. The hospital also has twice earned status as a J.D. Power and Associates Distinguished Hospital. The Genesis Center for Weight Management has been recognized as a Center of Excellence by the Society of Bariatric and Metabolic Surgeons.


As testament to that progress, Genesis, DeWitt has earned recognition as a “25 Most Wired Rural Hospital” for use of information technology in providing safe and quality care. Three times, the hospital’s Emergency Department has been presented the “Summit Award,” the health care satisfaction industry’s most coveted symbol of achievement. Adjacent to the hospital is the nationally recognized Westwing Place, a 76-bed, long-term care facility registered as an Eden Alternative facility that provides a living habitat for residents using plants, animals and children. Outpatient clinics in areas from orthopedics and ophthalmology to sleep and cardiovascular medicine bring experts to the rural hospital. Designated as a Critical Access Hospital, the rural hospital receives a higher level of reimbursement from Medicare, which helps it continue to provide high quality, affordable health services to the community.

HOSPITAL CAMPUSES Genesis Medical Center, Illini Campus In 1968, the predecessor of the Genesis Medical Center, Illini Campus opened in Silvis, Ill. to provide much-needed health care to the citizens of Upper Rock Island County. Over the years, what began as a community hospital has grown into a complex network of services, offering everything from assisted living and long-term care to a Level 2 trauma center to services like ambulance, cardiac catheterization and rehabilitation, birthing, pediatrics, surgical, infusion and imaging. The hospital’s imaging technology exceeds that of many larger hospitals.

Mercer County Hospital Jackson County Regional Health Center Genesis leadership understands the financial challenges faced by rural hospitals and the crucial role they play in the health of the communities they serve. In 2010, Genesis began a four-year affiliation agreement with the county-owned, 22-bed Mercer County Hospital in Aledo, Ill. Also in 2010, it began a management agreement with the 25-bed Jackson County Regional Health Center in Maquoketa, Iowa.

The former Illini Hospital affiliated with Genesis Health System in 1996, creating the Quad Cities’ first regional bi-state health system. The 150-bed Genesis, Illini Campus has always had a tradition of patient-centered care and an organizational-wide commitment to patient satisfaction. The Illini Campus was recognized as one of the nation’s topperforming hospitals by the Joint Commission, achieving excellence in 2010 in heart failure, pneumonia and surgical care. The hospital also earned a quality award from the Lincoln Foundation for Performance Excellence. Unique to the region, the Illini Campus also offers four levels of care for seniors on its campus – from intermediate care, Medicare-certified skilled care and sheltered care at the 120-bed Illini Restorative Care to independent living in the 80 apartment units at Crosstown Square. The campus also boasts a freestanding outpatient dialysis center, an outpatient physical rehabilitation clinic, a diabetes center, a sleep testing center, and a full-service interstate laboratory.


BARIATRIC SURGERY/WEIGHT MANAGEMENT The Genesis Center for Weight Management is the region’s only Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence, as recognized by the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery. It also is the only regional program to receive a Blue Distinction Center for Bariatric Care designation from Blue Cross and Blue Shield. Center patients receive surgical treatment for the growing problem of morbid obesity. A multi-disciplinary clinic sets the Genesis program apart, providing a continuum of care to patients before and after surgery. Patients attend introductory education classes followed by consultations with the nursing staff, dietitian, psychologist, surgeon, physical therapist, pharmacist and recreational therapist. Psychological evaluations are done through Genesis Psychology Associates. Only patients who meet strict pre-surgery requirements are scheduled for surgery.

bypass with this procedure, only stomach reduction. The Genesis Center for Weight Management also has a new non-surgical option to help patients lose weight permanently. It's the only program in the region to offer the OptifastÂŽ Program. Optifast patients are given a medical weight loss program, including support, counseling, lifestyle education and meal replacements. Optifast is a meal-replacement program of drinks, soups and bars, along with a low-fat frozen meal.

The Center offers patients three surgical weight-loss options. Surgeons perform the Roux-en Y gastric bypass procedure using the laparoscopic and open methods. Roux-en-Y is the most widely performed surgical procedure for weight loss. The procedure reroutes a variable length of the small intestine to connect to a newly created stomach pouch, bypassing a portion of the digestive system. The procedure promotes weight loss not only by limiting food intake, but also by decreasing the absorption ability of the digestive system.

Call the Genesis Center for Weight Management at (563) 421-8361.

Genesis also offers gastric banding, one of the least invasive approaches to obesity because neither the stomach nor the intestine is cut. The Lap-Band system involves the laparoscopic placement of a hollow silastic band around the upper part of the stomach. This band divides the stomach into a small upper pouch above the band and a larger pouch below the band. This small gastric pouch limits the amount of food that a patient can eat at any one time. Because the band is adjustable and does not permanently alter the anatomy, it provides an option to the Roux-en-Y procedure. In the latest surgical option available at Genesis, vertical sleeve gastrectomy generates weight loss solely through gastric restriction (reduced stomach volume.) The stomach is restricted by dividing it vertically and removing more than 85 percent of it. This part of the procedure is not reversible. There is no intestinal


BEHAVIORAL HEALTH Genesis Psychology Associates

Inpatient psychiatry

Genesis Psychology Associates is a multidisciplinary mental health group practice serving the Greater Quad City area and Eastern Iowa. Its skilled providers meet a full range of mental health needs and provide a wide range of educational and diverse consultant services to the community. These behavioral health practitioners provide diagnosis, evaluation, psychotherapy, consultation, employee assistance and psychoeducational seminars and workshops throughout the community.

In 2011, Genesis Medical Center, Davenport hired the area's first psychiatric hospitalist to oversee the management of adult inpatients on the hospital's Behavioral Health Unit, located on the West Central Park campus. Now, two psychiatric hospitalists are dedicated full-time to treating psychiatric patients who are in the hospital.

Special services include complete child custody evaluations, social skill development, sex offender treatment services, grief recovery, eating disorders, parenting, coping with cancer and lifethreatening illnesses, attention deficit disorder and hyperactivity, sexual abuse recovery, women’s issues, anger management, chemical dependency, stress management and marital and relationship counseling.


The move responds to a critical shortage of psychiatrists across the nation and is a way to consistently have inpatient coverage. Plans are to grow the psychiatric hospitalist model and add more practitioners. The unit's staff includes nurses with special expertise in treating behavioral health patients and occupational, recreational and milieu therapists. Milieu therapy is a type of psychotherapy in which the total environment is used in treatment. The unit's staff develop and conduct treatment with other specialists as necessary.

Addictions assessment

For more information, call (563) 355-2577. Inpatients at Genesis Medical Center who may need addiction treatment receive an assessment from a hospital chaplain who also is a certified alcohol and drug abuse counselor. In addition to inpatient addiction assessments, the chaplain addresses the grief and spiritual needs experienced by people on the brink of making the life-changing decision to seek treatment. Referrals are made to the Center for Alcohol & Drug Services (CADS).

“An Outstanding Patient Experience” It’s the opinion of our patients...again.



Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)

The Genesis BirthCenters on the East Rusholme Street campus in Davenport and the Illini Campus in Silvis deliver the comforts of home, the amenities of a hotel, improved technology and tender-loving care from medical experts who involve families in the miracle of birth.

A partnership between Genesis and the University of Iowa has brought world-class care to premature and sick babies in the region and a period of rapid change and growth. Board-certified neonatologists, who are on the faculty of the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Iowa Roy J. and Lucille A. Carver College of Medicine and the staff of Children’s Hospital of Iowa, are assigned to Genesis to provide care for babies in the NICU at the East Rusholme Street campus in Davenport. The physicians practice at Genesis on a full-time basis and live in the Quad Cities. The result has been that more sick babies are able to remain in the Quad Cities and receive their care at Genesis instead of being transferred.

At both hospitals, babies spend most of their time at Mom’s bedside. Dad can stay overnight on a comfortable pullout bed. Spacious birthing suites include wood floors, armoires with TVs, whirlpool tubs, hairdryers and adjustable lighting and music. Instead of being moved from the labor room to the delivery room to recovery and then back to a hospital room, families can share in the entire birthing experience in one room. The Illini Campus set the trend in 1986, becoming the first hospital in the state of Illinois to offer all LDRP rooms where mothers can go through labor, delivery, recovery and postpartum care in their own private room. The Genesis BirthCenter in Davenport features some LDRP rooms as well. Should a complication arise, parents find peace of mind knowing there are surgical suites for cesarean births, a Level II Special Care Nursery at the lllini Campus, and the region’s most advanced Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Genesis Medical Center, Davenport. Genesis also is leading the way as new national standards emerge to improve childbirth outcomes. As hospitals begin to impose new perinatal patient safety standards, they are calling on the Genesis BirthCenters for advice. In the wake of this trend, Genesis is restricting elective labor inductions and C-sections before 39 weeks gestation; reducing dosages of the laborinducing drug oxytocin; and, educating doctors and nurses together on standardized fetal-monitoring language. All these efforts create a culture of safety for patients.

As the only Level II Regional NICU in the Iowa Quad Cities, the NICU provides superior care with leading technology. It also offers a charming setting that ensures privacy and comfort for families dealing with the stress of having a baby who requires intensive care. There are several private rooms for babies with the highest need for care. As babies become more stable, they move into one of several bay areas where they can continue to heal and grow. For the comfort of families, there is a family waiting room, a beverage station, facilities for showering and a secure storage locker for their use. Two “nesting” rooms give parents the opportunity to stay with their babies in a home-like setting and learn their care needs before they are discharged. An expansion completed in 2008 brought the NICU up to 20 beds.

FOR MORE INFORMATION Classes in childbirth preparation, prenatal care, infant CPR, breastfeeding, infant massage and child sibling needs are available. For information about classes and tours, log on to or call (563) 421-6300 for the Davenport campus or (309) 281-4440 for the Illini Campus.

The program has been an American College of Surgeons-approved Comprehensive Cancer Program since 1989. Services encompass prevention, early detection, state-of-the-art treatments, education, research and patient and family support. Treatments include surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Genesis also is a founding sponsor of the Komen Quad Cities Race for the Cure®.

In 2008-2009, the Cancer Care Institute underwent an $11 million expansion of technology and services to make Genesis a national cancer care destination. With its completion, Genesis Cancer Care Institute is now one of the most comprehensive, state-ofthe-art programs in the Midwest. In addition to a renovation and expansion of the West Central Park, Davenport facility, Genesis introduced two cancer-fighting treatment weapons that are the latest and best available – the TomoTherapy HiArt treatment system and the Varian Trilogy BrainLAB Exac Trac Robotics system. With the acquisition, Genesis is one of a very few elite cancer care facilities to offer both technologies. The institute also offers minimally invasive Da Vinci Robotic Surgery for prostate and colorectal cancer.


The Genesis Infusion Center provides intravenous therapies for indications including, but not limited to cancer, neurological diseases, pain and autoimmune diseases. Oncology Certified Nurses, experts in chemotherapy and blood product transfusions, give support and education. At any one time, the Genesis Cancer Care Institute participates in as many as 60 cancer prevention and treatment trials. It is involved in national clinical trials for both prevention and treatment of cancers, with coordination by research nurses and participating physicians. Genesis’ cancer program is a key participant in the Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) Program of the National Cancer Institute. The center’s proactive approach to improving services includes comparisons to both national and state treatment and outcome information for various cancer diagnostic categories.

CANCER cont. Center for Breast Health

Oncology unit

In 2007, Genesis became the first health system in the Quad Cities to offer digital mammography as a standard of care. Digital mammography is the most advanced screening tool in the early detection of breast cancer, particularly in women who are younger than 50, who have dense breasts, or who are premenopausal. Genesis has machines at Center for Breast Health locations: at the Kenneth H. McKay, M.D. Center for Breast Health at the East Rusholme Street campus in Davenport; the Genesis Imaging Centers in Bettendorf and Davenport; and at Genesis hospital locations in DeWitt and the Illini Campus in Silvis. Digital mammography also is available at Jackson County Regional Health Center.

Oncology patients receive care in the newly renovated Oncology Unit on the West Central Park campus in Davenport. The multidisciplinary team of oncology professionals is comprised of nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, recreational therapists, physicians, social workers, dietitians, spiritual care staff and an oncology clinical specialist. All rooms are private and include special amenities to help make stays more comfortable and provide a personal environment to promote healing. There is 24/7 infusion therapy available. Inpatient Hospice care also is offered.

Since then, the center has added Automated Breast Ultrasound, and new in 2010, the Quad Cities region’s first Electronic Brachytherapy Program for early-stage breast cancer. These technological milestones, however, are only one component of the Center for Breast Health. From screenings, to consultations, to diagnosis, to treatment planning and support, the center uses a collaborative approach to deliver care. This brings together a team of surgeons, radiologists and mammography technologists with extensive training in breast health and mammography that provides a continuum of care for patients’ breast wellness. The center, which opened in 1994, was one of the first in the country to study the effectiveness of sentinel lymph node biopsy, which now is an accepted standard of care for women diagnosed with breast cancer. Every patient with breast cancer is given an individualized treatment plan and the education and emotional support she needs to battle her disease.

CARDIOLOGY For nearly 40 years, Genesis has provided leading-edge heart care and demonstrated a commitment to clinical excellence and quality care. Genesis, along with its predecessor hospitals, has been the Quad Cities’ leader in heart care since 1973, when Dr. James Gilson opened the first cardiac catheterization lab at Mercy Hospital and Dr. William Dippel performed the first open-heart surgery at St. Luke’s Hospital. Genesis Medical Center, Davenport is the lead center for the health system’s heart care services. Open-heart surgery and interventional cardiac catheterization lab procedures take place there. Genesis Medical Center, Davenport, is also a dedicated facility for diagnosing and treating abnormal heart rhythms. Other locations for heart care include the Genesis, Illini and DeWitt campuses

The hospital also has earned designation as a UnitedHealth Premium Cardiac Specialty Center and a Blue Distinction Center for Cardiac Care. Genesis Heart Institute cardiologists are involved in research studies and publish and present abstracts and technical papers to national and international audiences. Genesis also was named one of the nation’s Top 50 Cardiovascular Hospitals by Thomson Reuters for 2011. The Genesis Cardiac Catheterization Lab in Davenport performs more than 2,500 percutaneous transluminal coronary interventions and more than 8,500 procedures each year. In 2010, the average door-to-balloon time was 59 minutes -- far faster than the 90-minute standard of care set by the American College of Cardiology. The hospital also became the first in the Quad Cities to launch Induced Hypothermia, a therapy aimed at improving outcomes for adult patients surviving cardiac arrest.

The lower level has the 174-seat Adler Health Education Center, which boasts computer capabilities at each seat, two adjacent breakout rooms and the latest audiovisual presentation technology. The Genesis Heart Institute is more than a building, however. It’s a multi-disciplinary association of cardiologists, cardiothoracic and vascular surgeons who collaborate on the best approach to manage and treat cardiovascular disease. The Institute brings together the most talented professionals across the many medical disciplines to provide added value and expertise to the Quad City region. It plays a key role in developing a comprehensive database of clinical cardiac outcomes. The institute links specialists throughout the region to information on the most advanced devices, drugs and treatment protocols. For more information, go to

Cardiac Rehabilitation Davenport The Genesis Cardiac Rehabilitation Program provides education and exercise for conditioning to individuals with cardiac disorders.

CRITICAL CARE Patients in the intensive care units at Genesis benefit from Point of Care computerized documentation at each bedside, which enables nurses and physicians to monitor patients more closely. Patients’ rooms are equipped with critical care beds that provide bed scales, full-chair positioning and patient egress positioning. Bedside monitors with central stations display cardiac rhythms, blood pressure, pulse rate, respiratory rate, arterial pressure, pulmonary artery pressure, intracranial pressure, oxygen saturation and other vital signs.

Surgical Intensive Care Unit (SICU) The 12-bed SICU on East Rusholme Street campus cares for patients who have had open-heart procedures, including coronary artery bypass grafts and valve repair or replacement.

DIABETES The nationally recognized Genesis Regional Diabetes Care Center creates a specific self-management program for each diabetes patient that encompasses the critical factors of diet, medication, exercise, motivation and emotional support. With the help of a multidisciplinary team of professionals, diabetes patients learn about the disease, how it affects the body and how they can manage the disease day-to-day. Patients learn to manage their disease and are empowered to be a partner in their care with their physician. The center was one of the first 300 hospital programs in the U.S. to achieve recognition from the American Diabetes Association and has maintained its certification every year since. It was one of the first programs in the Midwest to develop a diabetes self-management program and an outpatient insulin pump program. It offers numerous education programs on diabetes management, pre-diabetes, and prevention. As a result, the highest accrediting body in health care, the Joint Commission, has used the Genesis center as a model for patient education programs. The Genesis Diabetes Care Center in Iowa has received national recognition as the Center of Excellence for Insulin Pump Therapy and Continuous Glucose Sensor Management by Medtronic MiniMed. The Regional Center for Diabetes Care of Iowa and Illinois also is one of the largest pump centers in the Midwest for people seeking intensive insulin management. In addition, Genesis Health Group, Endocrinology is located in the same building as the center in Bettendorf, with endocrinologists and an Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner offering on-site expertise to patients with diabetes.

Parents may even spend the night in their child’s room.


PHARMACY Need to fill a prescription quickly? Pharmacies located at the Davenport, DeWitt and Illini campuses can help. Inhouse pharmacies meet both inpatient and outpatient needs and are responsible for supplying and dispensing medications to patients and keeping doctors, nurses and patients informed about these medications. Round-the-clock safeguards are in place to prevent medication errors. Cutting-edge technology at Genesis helps remove the chance for human error by enabling physicians to electronically write prescriptions at the bedside and nurses to obtain medication from ATM-like automated dispensing systems called Omnicell. In 2010, Bar Code Medication Administration was added to improve patient safety and reduce medication errors. With a hand-held scanner connected to a wireless laptop computer, a nurse or respiratory therapist scans a bar code on the patient’s identification wristband and then a bar code on individually packaged medications. A system alert identifies any discrepancies. Genesis also has installed state-of-the-art “clean rooms” at its Davenport and Illini campuses to respond to far-reaching national guidelines on the preparation, storage and delivery of sterile compounded drugs in health care facilities. A clean room is a controlled environment in which the concentration of airborne particles is controlled to specific limits. The Genesis, DeWitt campus has addressed these guidelines as well and uses what is called an isolation chamber, a mini clean room of sorts that enables staff to place their hands in a sterile area while compounding.

Residents reserve the activity room for their individual club functions and look forward to helping staff care for the garden, flowers and courtyard. Youngsters often drop by, and families enjoy the lovely courtyard and vegetable garden. This fresh approach removes the loneliness, helplessness and boredom that is so often associated with long-term care.

SPIRITUAL CARE The chaplains and volunteers of the Genesis Spiritual Care Department are at the heart of the celebrations, tragedies, fears, family struggles and painful emotions that often accompany hospital life. With religious roots that go back more than 140 years, Genesis’ legacy of care has evolved from its predecessors – from the Episcopalian roots of St. Luke’s Hospital and the Catholic heritage of the Sisters of Mercy who founded Mercy Hospital. That heritage is reflected today in the mission of Genesis “to provide compassionate, quality health services to all those in need.” Professional chaplains provide a caring presence to patients, visitors and staff and are supported by interns from the Genesis Pastoral Education Program, by Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist and by Befrienders, a team of trained volunteers who give a “listening ear” and caring presence to people in times of illness or grief. They also work with cooperatively with local clergy. Comprehensive spiritual services include crisis intervention, personal grief counseling, sacramental services, prayer partnership, grief support, advance directive assistance and access to representatives of one’s personal faith. At Genesis, the healing power of spirituality extends into patient care plans, trauma and heart attack alerts and summer camp for grieving children. Hospital chaplains deliberate at the table during ethical discussions; are often present during the removal of patient’s life support; and help patients dealing with the spiritual issues surrounding their decisions to have a “Do Not

Resusitate” order. Chaplains are outsourced to other organizations in the community, and for the past four decades, Spiritual Care has led grief support groups. In perhaps one of its most important roles, it also tends to the spiritual needs of the Genesis nurses and physicians who are on the frontlines of patient care. Through Prairie and River Spiritual Resources, a variety of outreach programs and services are offered, including personal spiritual directors, speakers, chaplains for contractual opportunities, motivation and team building, adult grief recovery and Rick’s House of Hope, a nationally acclaimed traumaintervention and grief-recovery resource for children and adolescents. The Spiritual Care Department supports the Health Ministry Nursing Program of the Genesis Visiting Nurse Association and sponsors continuing education programs for area faith leaders on issues of spirituality and health. A 24-hour chapel on each Davenport campus and the Illini Campus offers peace and solitude to visitors of all faiths.

da Vinci Surgical System


da Vinci Surgical System The da Vinci Surgical System is one of the latest technologies of Genesis SmartCare, the array of minimally invasive and noninvasive procedures that get patients back to their normal life sooner. At Genesis, the da Vinci is used to perform procedures like hysterectomy and prostatectomy. During surgery, the surgeon sits situated several feet away from the patient on the operating table. Through the console, the surgeon can view anatomy in 3-D while using remote controls to guide the da Vinci's robotic arms through dime-size incisions. The system gives the surgeon excellent visualization and dexterity.

Spring Park Surgery Center Spring Park Surgery Center, LLC., is a joint venture with Urological Associates, P.C., Eye Surgeons Associates, P.C., and Genesis Medical Center, Davenport. Spring Park offers a convenient location at 3319 Spring St. in Davenport for outpatient surgeries, such as cataract removal and urology procedures. The center has the Quad Cities area’s only permanent lithotripter. Lithotripsy, a non-surgical procedure, uses shock waves to safely and effectively pulverize kidney stones into tiny particles that pass naturally.

The da Vinci's thin arms and ability to move in 360-degree circles eliminate the natural tremor of even the most steady surgeon's hands. Surgical tools are held by up to three arms -- which protrude off a machine -- while a fourth arm carries a scope with a tiny camera. Through the scope, the surgeon sees anatomy with 10 times the magnification. A da Vinci surgery typically offers many benefits over traditional surgical procedures, including: • less pain • less scarring • a shorter hospital stay • lower risk of infection • faster return to normal daily activities

The new Genesis Wound and Hyperbaric Medicine Institute opened in 2009 with a major service expansion and renovation and the arrival of hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Today, patients with chronic wounds who use the hyperbaric chambers enjoy the largest single-person chambers now being produced in the U.S. During hyperbaric oxygen therapy, patients are placed inside a pressurized chamber of 100 percent oxygen. The painless therapy delivers high concentrations of oxygen to the bloodstream, accelerates wound healing and fights certain types of infections. It also stimulates the growth of new blood vessels and improves circulation. The institute uses a multidisciplinary approach to assist in the healing and rehabilitative process and provides assessment, evaluation and treatment recommendations for wounds and ostomies of all types. Patients also receive the expert support of physicians and nurses who have special expertise in wound/ostomy care. Upon initial evaluation, a plan of care is developed for the patient. Consultation with other services or health care professionals may include the expertise of: the primary care physician, endocrinologist, infectious disease expert, nutritionist, diabetes educator and home care nurse. A general or vascular surgeon, urologist, physiatrist, an occupational or physical therapist, as well as social services, orthopedic and orthotic/prosthetic services may be used. Together, these specialists offer guidance, education and treatment recommendations for ostomies and wounds of all types, including venous and arterial ulcers, minor burns and non-healing chronic wounds. The clinic also specializes in the care of difficult-to-pouch ostomies, fistulas and slowhealing chronic wounds.

It provides health risk assessments, nurse consultations, on-site tobacco cessation, weight control services, blood pressure and cholesterol control and exercise classes for employees.

Hospitalist program Genesis Medical Center, Davenport was the first hospital in the region to offer a full-time hospitalist program. In 2005, Genesis contracted with Cogent Healthcare, Inc., the nation’s quality leader in hospital medicine, to staff and manage the program. Hospitalists limit their practice to patients in the hospital. Primary care physicians use hospitalists when their patients are admitted to the hospital, so they can focus on patients in their offices. This means less travel between office and hospital and reduces unexpected waits for patients in the office. Hospitalists also provide and coordinate care for hospital patients who do not have a primary care physician. The Genesis hospitalist program has consistently been at 99 percent for patient satisfaction, and the average length of stay for patients has been reduced by nearly one day. The program was expanded in 2009, when it was made available to patients and referring physicians at the Genesis, Illini Campus in Silvis.

United Healthcare and Genesis have introduced a new health plan with wellness features designed to promote healthy habits among employees and help employers keep health plans affordable. The new Heritage Premier Plan, a cost-effective health insurance plan administered by UnitedHealthcare Employer & Individual, includes preventive wellness screenings through Genesis' broad network of physicians and other care providers and identifies risk factors for diabetes, heart disease, stroke and other life-threatening conditions.
