Segment performance

Genesis Healthcare operates in three business segments: inpatient services, rehabilitation therapy services, and other services.

In 3Q17, this business generated $1.1 billion in revenue compared to $1.2 billion in 3Q16. At 86%, inpatient services contributed the most to Genesis Healthcare’s total revenue. The fall in the business’s revenue was due to lower occupancy levels and shorter lengths of stay.

Rehabilitation and other services

The rehabilitation services business consists of therapy services and generated $151.8 million in revenue in 3Q17 compared to $160.3 million in 3Q16. This fall was the result of lost contract business and reduced volume of services provided.

At $33.9 million, the other services business contributed 2.6% to Genesis Healthcare’s total revenue in 3Q17 compared to $34.3 million in 3Q16.

Major sources of revenue

Genesis Healthcare receives a major part of its revenue from two sources: Medicare and Medicaid. In 3Q17, the company received 22% of its revenue from Medicare and 57% of its revenue from Medicaid.
