Visiting Nurses Associates (VNA) Philadelphia

What Does Hero Mean?


As the oldest health care agency in the region, VNA’s mission is to provide comprehensive home health, palliative and end of life care of the highest quality to all people, regardless of their ability to pay.  VNA Philadelphia provides care to approximately 1,200 patients each day through our home health, palliative and hospice programs.  VNA Philadelphia operates a 15-bed Inpatient Hospice Unit; an innovative Home Health program which includes Home Health Aides, LPNs, RNs, BSNs, Nurse Practitioners, Therapists and MSWs; a Palliative Care program which helps chronically ill patients and their families improve quality of life and a Population Health program with MSWs and Clergy.  In addition to supporting the community in 1918 during the Spanish Flu, VNA has helped during COVID-19 by providing health care and frozen meals and fresh produce from its food pantry to patients which staff hand delivered to patient homes and provided extra food to community partners to help those most impacted by food insecurity.
