VNA Care Updates
Salute to Nurses
April 30, 2016
Home care had a prominent place in this year's "Salute to Nurses", a special section published every year in the Boston Globe recognizing the work of nurses in every health care setting. VNA Care's Jessica ZuHone, a registered nurse with VNA Hospice & Palliative Care, was one of deserving recipients of this great recognition; nominated by colleague Deborah Turiano, associate medical director. Jessica's nomination in part read "It is a special nurse whose experiences with patients mold him/her into an even more exceptional person."

HCA Lobby Day
April 29, 2016
VNA Care was proud to participate in the 2016 Lobby Day at the State House, sponsored by the Home Care Alliance of Massachusetts. Mary Ann O'Connor, president & CEO presented on the innovative practices agencies like VNA Care are using to keep patients safe and healthy at home.
Although the House budget process has yet to officially conclude, state representatives voted on items related to Health and Human Services, Public Health and Elder Affairs with barely any home care-related initiatives approved. We need to work together to impress upon our elected officials the value and incredible importance of health care services delivered in the home.
Same mission. Same dedicated staff. Same exceptional care.
