About VNS Home Health Services ...

Since the early 1900s, southern Rhode Islanders have relied on the services of the visiting nurse to provide compassionate and skilled health care to their families, friends, and neighbors in the comfort of their own homes.  VNS Home Health Services traces its roots to 1904, when six individual agencies served a small rural population in the towns of southern Rhode Island.  For many of those residents, the presence of the visiting nurse offered tremendous comfort as well as skilled medical care in their time of need, a mission that continues with every visit we make today.

We serve patients needing skilled medical services following a discharge from a medical facility, as well as those patients that can receive care at home instead of the hospital or another acute care provider.  Whether we're bringing antibiotic therapy to a homebound patient, making a home visit to the parents of a premature infant, or coordinating health checks and immunizations for seniors, VNS Home Health Services is committed to excellence.

VNS Home Health Services includes a staff of medical professionals: Registered Nurses; Certified Nursing Assistants; Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapists; Medical Social Workers; and Nutritionists. We're here for you through every stage of life.

Our Commitment ...

In a time of increasing pressures on home health care providers, we want you to be reassured that VNS Home Health Services remains a trusted, reliable resource for southern Rhode Island.  As an affiliate of  South County Hospital, we have further strengthened the availability of community-based, independent home health services for the residents of southern Rhode Island, our mission since 1904. We're proud to be accredited with commendation by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Health Care Organizations, ranking us among the nation's best when it comes to quality assurance and performance.
