Porchlight VNA Relocates Pittsfield Staff to Lee 

Porchlight VNA/Home Care, which is managed by VNA Care, recently moved staff from its Pittsfield office to the nonprofit’s office in Lee.

Porchlight’s lease on the Pittsfield office space ran out on Sept. 1, and the building’s owner put the facility on the market.

Holly Chaffee, President and CEO of VNA Care and Porchlight, shared with the Berkshire Eagle that the office consolidation does not affect the organization’s commitment to serving all of the Berkshires. Since care is delivered in patients’ homes the “majority of our staff does not go to an office anyway,” Chaffee said in a Berkshire Eagle article. “The actual physical location isn’t as important to them.”

Chaffee also told the Berkshire Eagle, “What we’re doing has to do so much with the change in health care reimbursements. Therefore, we have to keep up with the pace, and the cutbacks and operate more efficiently. We operate more efficiently with technology. We’ve been able to invest in and support it.”

Porchlight, established in 1912 as the Lee VNA, also maintains an office in Chicopee. Read the full interview with Holly Chaffee on the Berkshire Eagle’s website.
