Times may have changed since its inception in 1889, but one thing remains at the heart of Bethesda’s mission: providing quality, compassionate care to those we serve. Bethesda’s broad network of employees, including medical staff, social workers, administrative professionals, life enrichment teams, and more, have been recognized for their dedication to the care and wellbeing of St. Louis area seniors.

Whether it’s making sure those in our independent living communities have everything they need to maintain their independence in a warm and welcoming environment, or providing individualized health care and support to seniors in our skilled nursing and rehabilitation communities, Bethesda employees go above and beyond to set a new standard of senior care.

The following recognitions are a direct reflection of the talented and compassionate employees that Bethesda has been fortunate enough to have on our teams:
