Presenting VNA Health System
to provide quality, cost-effective home health and related services in our service territory, to all persons or families, regardless of their ability to pay.
The VNA Health System has an interesting history reflecting the changes in home health care over the years. Our growth has been remarkable and is growing bigger every year!
On March 10, 1913, Shamokin Visiting Nurse Association became the first VNA founded in the region. A group of community minded citizens felt it was beneficial for the residents of Shamokin to have a non-profit organization provide skilled nursing for ill patients in the home. The purpose of the organization was to provide home health care to homebound patients regardless of race, color, creed, or ability to pay. Our mission statement today reflects these same important words.
