At the Visiting Nurse Service of New York, we understand the issues people living in Manhattan face every day. We know that if you are ill or injured or elderly, it can be hard to travel from place to place, walk safely on crowded sidewalks, or even do the laundry. We know you live in the very real world of New York, and that is why we offer a wide range of services. From pediatrics to senior care, short-term interventions to long-term management, our skilled nurses, other clinical professionals and home health aides have the medical expertise and compassion you need to live your best life possible.

At VNSNY, we have a long tradition serving the residents of Manhattan, and we’re a part of the fabric of your community:

  • Of our approximately 13,000 employees, more than 4,500 live in Manhattan.
  • We served more than 31,000 patients in Manhattan in 2007. 
  • Our multi-lingual staff members are able to provide care to patients who don’t speak English comfortably—and that’s more than one-fourth of our patients in Manhattan.
  • In Manhattan, we offer post-hospital care, rehabilitation therapies, long term home health care, AIDS programs, end-of-life care, and help with all activities of daily living. Through our affiliate company, VNSNY CHOICE, we also offer health plans. Learn more about VNSNY CHOICE and the VNSNY CHOICE Service Areas.

We also offer the following services in Manhattan, specifically:

  • Chinese Community Center (Chinatown)
  • CHINATOWN NNORC (Chinatown)
  • The Haven inpatient unit and The Goodman Brown Residence for end-of-life care (Upper East Side) 

VNSNY can help make the transition from hospital to home as easy as possible, with no gaps in your care or treatment. We also accept referrals from every hospital in Manhattan, and we have nurses on site at many of them.
