The Visiting Nurse Service of New York (VNSNY) is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to home and community-based health care. The agency was established in 1893 by Lillian D. Wald, the founder of public health nursing in the United States.

To facilitate the management and delivery of home health care services, VNSNY’s affiliates have offices in each borough of New York City and in Nassau County.
Every patient in our care, whether receiving certified or licensed services, has a single professional who coordinates all services and who can answer patient questions. The nurse or therapist, working closely with the patient‘s physician or managed care case manager, will provide care directly and/or arrange for all authorized home care services.
