About Visiting Nurse & Hospice (VNH)

Visiting Nurse and Hospice for Vermont and New Hampshire (VNH) is home to the leading team of home health experts for communities in Vermont and New Hampshire. We deliver excellence in nursing, rehabilitation, hospice, and personal care services with proven effectiveness, integrity and compassion. Currently, VNH covers 4,000 square miles, caring for more than 6,000 people each year, and making over 150,000 home visits to people of all ages and at all stages of life.

Our History

The local home nursing movement originated in Windsor, Vermont in 1907. Over the decades, many visiting nurses organizations grew and thrived in communities throughout the area. Changes in health care reimbursement policies made it necessary to combine resources to create more sustainable organizations, and, over time, a number of smaller visiting nurse and hospice organizations merged to become today’s VNH.

Our Mission

We are dedicated to delivering outstanding home health and hospice services that enrich the lives of the people we serve. In more than 140 towns in Vermont and New Hampshire, we deliver excellence in nursing, rehabilitation, hospice, and personal care services. As a non-profit, our only goal is helping people.
