The VNA was founded over 40 years ago with the distinct mission of fulfilling the need to provide homecare for local residents of Indian River County. In its inception, the VNA of the Treasure Coast employed one nurse director and one home health aide. Together, they traveled to patients’ homes and provided clinic and personal care services. Fast forward to the present day, and the VNA now employs close to 400 clinical and administrative staff to help the community members with their needs.
As the VNA grew, as did the space needed. We currently house the Human Services Building directly located behind the Indian River Medical Center’s Emergency Room. In 2000, we opened our doors for our Hospice House, a 12-room state of the art facility privately nestled on hospital grounds.
Finally, the VNA again expanded its range of expertise with VNA Private Care – the agency’s private home care service line. This allows us to reach an even more residents and help more people with issues such as transportation, personal care and clinical care.
Today, our mission and values continue to focus on patient care, and we are proud of the ability to serve and help the members of our community.
