Genesis HealthCare System is committed to providing improved access to innovative healthcare and patient support services for the residents of Perry County. The Genesis Perry County Medical Center includes a 7,500 square foot Emergency Department and 10,500 square foot center for outpatient services including therapies and advanced imaging.

Exceptional because minutes matter

In 2021, the Genesis Perry County Medical Center Emergency Department (ED) had an average wait time of only 18 minutes from the time a patient enters our ED until they are seen by one of our medical providers for treatment. These achievements were accomplished while treating over 15,600 patients.

Why do we work so hard? Because in cases of trauma, heart attack or stroke, every minute matters. The first hour after the onset of symptoms or injury is called “The Golden Hour” because it’s recognized that the sooner trauma, stroke or heart attack patients reach expert care – particularly if they arrive within 60 minutes of the onset of symptoms or injury – the better their chance of survival. Every minute matters.

Conditions we treat

Our always open Emergency Department treats all emergency situations, but we are especially prepared to treat serious medical situations, including the following:

Heart Attack
Stroke
Complex Medical Conditions
Serious Injuries
