Visiting Nurse Health System, the largest nonprofit in Georgia providing person-centered home healthcare, long-term care at home, and hospice services, is an organization dedicated to helping people manage their health and recover from illness in the comfort of their own home. Our nurses, therapists and other professionals give patients quality one-on-one care, helping them achieve the best possible outcomes in their homes, whether they are recovering from a surgery or acute illness or managing a long-term chronic condition. Our goal is to allow the patients we serve to maintain their independence and avoid repeating hospital or nursing home stays.
When patients face a life-limiting illness, we know they and their families need a special kind of care. We strive to ensure that every patient is cared for compassionately, comfortably and with dignity, and that every family receives the support they need during this difficult time, regardless of their ability to pay.

Joint Commission Accreditation
The Joint Commission sets standards for best practices by ranking an organization’s clinical, management and leadership strengths. The Commission also looks at financial stability and sustainability, and the strength and makeup of the board of directors. Visiting Nurse Health System is one of only a few organizations in Georgia that has accreditation for both our healthcare at home services and our hospice services. We believe the stamp of approval from The Joint Commission is proof of the outstanding quality of our home health and hospice programs.
The Joint Commission also offers education in best practices that helps us continually evaluate and improve our services and operations. Our interdisciplinary team knows the importance of Joint Commission accreditation and the high standards it requires. You can feel confident in the care your patients and families will receive with us.
