“We at the Coshocton Foundation are pleased to be able to participate in this initiative to bring a major capital investment to Coshocton County. In addition to the emphasis on delivering their high level of quality patient care, we see the establishment of the Genesis Coshocton Medical Center as a catalyst for growth in terms of employment opportunities for area residents and the increase in our local income tax base, along with the potential for additional development along US Route 36. By eliminating barriers that travel can present, such as cost, time, inconvenience for family members, etc., county residents will be able to see a specialist in a local office, access testing resources and better manage their health outcomes with the help of Genesis’ dedicated health care professionals.” – Bob Pell, Coshocton Foundation Executive Director
