GCCCA Partners with Genesis Family Health to Reopen Site Location

Garden City, Kan (WesternKansasNews.Com) – Garden City Career Connection Academy (GCCCA) has
partnered with Genesis Family Health to reopen the GCCCA East Campus site, located at 4101 E
US 50, Lot 466, in the East Garden Village (EGV) neighborhood to provide educational services
as well as preventative health care and referrals.


The East Garden Village neighborhood, with an approximate population of 3,000 residents—
nearly 10% of Garden City’s population—is a prime location for educational as well as health
care services. This site, previously closed in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, will now offer
classes including General Equivalency Diploma (GED), English Language Acquisition (ELA), and
citizenship. Services through Genesis Family Health will include KanCare assistance, case
management, food assistance, Healthy Heart blood pressure checks, and diabetes education.


“I am thrilled to be able to reopen GCCCA’s East Campus location for classes and I’m particularly
pleased to be partnering with Genesis Family Health to help provide a walk-in clinic. I think this
is a win-win for everyone, especially those residents of East Garden Village who will now have
educational and health services available to them all within walking distance from their
homes,” said Cary Conley, Director of Adult Education and Literacy at the Career Connections
Academy.


Geovannie Gone, Chief Administrative Officer for Genesis Family Health, stated, “The mission of
Genesis Family Health is ‘Quality Healthcare for Everyone.” We are committed to finding
innovative ways to address healthcare gaps and social determinants of health in an effective
way. It is our honor to partner with the GCCC Career Connection Academy to bring to the
community social service and health access and education all in one place, from learning
English and GED classes to assist with food insecurity, chronic disease management, notary
services, translations, and other health-related education. This center will be KEY to supporting
all the families that live at East Garden Village, surrounding neighborhoods, and nearby schools.
Genesis Family Health is excited for this new Partnership with the GCCCA.”


A ribbon-cutting will be held Friday, May 20th, at 11 AM to celebrate the reopening of this site.
