We have preferred relationships with Atlanta’s finest healthcare institutions. These hospitals and health systems trust the care of their discharged patients to Visiting Nurse Health System.
Our Work in the Community
Because we are a community nonprofit, the people we serve are our only shareholders. Earnings we receive are given back to our patients and the community we serve through innovative patient care programs for insured and underinsured patients alike and through continuing education for our clinicians who deliver that care.
Each year, Visiting Nurse Health System and our community partners provide more than $6 million of needed programs and services to the community. We partner with exceptional nonprofit organizations such as Atlanta Regional Commission aging and health resources, Emory University’s Rollins School of Public Health, The Fuqua Center for Late Life Depression, Atlanta Housing Authority, the Alzheimer’s Association (Georgia Chapter), Fulton and DeKalb county office for senior affairs, and many others. Our community services include everything from providing free flu shots to coordinating health services for the senior community to help them stay independent and in their homes for as long as possible. These programs make us unique among home healthcare providers in the metro Atlanta area.
