Visiting Nurse Association, established in 1889, is Colorado’s oldest nonprofit home healthcare agency. VNA is committed to a continuum of health care in the home and community, supporting optimal well-being, independence, and dignity. To achieve this, our highly skilled team provides individualized care and education to patients and their families every step of the way.
Our staff love the VNA for its rich history, supportive management, opportunities for education and professional growth and the autonomy that homecare offers. It’s no wonder such an environment leads to positive outcomes for our patients as evidenced by recent statistics. Less than 14.5% of VNA patients are readmitted to the hospital, which puts us in the top 7% nationally. In addition, less than 6% of VNA patients are readmitted to the hospital within 30 days of discharge from multiple facilities, compared to a nationwide average of 11.7%.
