VNSNY and the Fight Against COVID-19

VNSNY has been on the front lines of every major health care crisis in New York for over 125 years, and our services will be critical to New York City during the COVID-19 pandemic. As we face this challenge with you, we are committed to:

  • Caring for our patients and staff. VNSNY continues to deliver care to the vulnerable New Yorkers who depend on us, including those with COVID-19, to make sure they safely receive the care they need.
  • Supporting our community. We care for patients in the home and community, which helps alleviate the pressure on New York hospitals and makes desperately-required beds available for the critical patients who need them.
  • Protecting our future. VNSNY’s commitment to caring is matched every day by New Yorkers’ strength and resilience. We know that what we do in the coming months will long be remembered, and we know that this is a marathon, not a sprint.

We are in this together, and together, we will stand strong.
