Visiting Nurse Association of Cape Cod
Caring for the Community
At the Visiting Nurse Association (VNA) of Cape Cod, our goal is to provide comprehensive home health and hospice services that enable individuals - from newborns to the elderly - to receive care in the privacy and comfort of their own homes. Our highly trained professionals are dedicated to ensuring a smooth transition from a hospital, nursing home or clinic to home.
Who We Are
Established in 1916, the VNA of Cape Cod is one of the oldest not-for-profit organizations on the Cape. The VNA provides an array of health services from skilled nursing and therapies in the home to community health programs. Changes in the healthcare environment, such as earlier hospital discharges, have led to an increasing need for the services of the VNA. To meet these challenges, we have grown to more than 850 employees, providing more than 300,000 home visits annually.
Available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, the VNA of Cape Cod cares for patients from Plymouth to Provincetown and the islands, a service area spanning more than 1,300 square miles.
The VNA of Cape Cod is accredited by the Joint Commission for Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations, is Medicare/Medicaid certified, and accepts most private insurance.
Our staff is dedicated to meeting the needs of physicians, healthcare professionals and most importantly, patients.
The VNA of Cape Cod is a proud member of the Cape & Islands Association of Community Health Agencies, Home & Health Care Association of Massachusetts, Visiting Nurse Association of New England, Inc., and the National Association of Home Care.
What We Do
Whether visiting patients recovering from surgery, managing chronic conditions or dealing with a terminal illness, VNA professionals have earned a reputation for their caring attitude, skills and professionalism. Our skilled services offer a wide range of care options that allow patients to recover where they feel most comfortable, in their own home.
The increased complexity of patient needs upon discharge from the hospital has required VNA staff to be skilled in complicated, high-tech care. Specially trained teams offer intravenous therapy, wound care, ostomy care, pain management, care, oncology, palliative and hospice care, mental health assessments, telemonitoring and maternal and child health. We provide seamless coordination of care through our advanced technologies.
The goal of every VNA intervention is to assist patients in achieving their maximum independence and health status while remaining safely in their own home.
In keeping with our mission, we are continuously expanding the scope of our services and raising the quality of care we provide.
Our commitment and connection to the communities we service continues to be the foundation upon which the VNA of Cape Cod builds for the future.
