Our mission is to provide the best quality person centered care to individuals regardless of payment source. Evergreen Living Innovations, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) whose roots began in 1863 in Johnson County, Kansas. In 2003, the county privatized the operation and Johnson County Nursing Center became a separate independent 501(c)(3) with a mission is to provide the best quality person centered care to those with minimal financial resources (80% of residents are on Medicaid). In 2009, the organization changed its name to Evergreen Living Innovations, Inc.
There are now two divisions of Evergreen Living Innovations - the skilled nursing community, named Evergreen Community of Johnson County and GERTI. The Evergreen Community of Johnson County (ECOJC) is a skilled nursing community of 112. GERTI, the educational division, was created in 2003. GERTI’s mission is to help organizations transform their institutional culture and task/time oriented operations into a more home-like and less institutional residential living through free and low cost education to the long-term care workforce.
