VNA Care Named a Finalist in the Nonprofit Excellence Awards

VNA Care was recently named a finalist in the 2019 Nonprofit Excellence Awards for the agency's work with Atrius Health on Care in Place.

The Excellence Award in Collaboration from the Massachusetts Nonprofit Network recognizes partnerships that address compelling problems that could not have been solved as effectively by any one organization on its own. 

Care in Place provides urgent, same-day home visits by a VNA Care registered nurse for patients who are at high risk for hospitalization and cannot safely travel to their Atrius Health physician's office for an appointment. Since its inception, this initiative has helped hundreds of patients remain safely at home and has resulted in significant savings in reduced total medical expenditure.

Heidi Wilson, associate medical officer for VNA Care, accepted a citation from the State Senate honoring this achievement during the Massachusetts Nonprofit Network's Nonprofit Awareness Day at the Statehouse on June 3, 2019.
