As the health care industry continues to rely on home-based care, VNSNY—the largest not-for-profit home- and community-based health care agency in the United States—has had to be new and vital every day.
In 2015, VNSNY provided care to more than 151,125 New Yorkers. Not all of this care was covered by government reimbursements or private insurance plans. Thanks in part to our many individual donors and institutional funders, we were able to combine philanthropic support with a substantial commitment from VNSNY itself to bridge this funding gap, allowing us to provide the most skilled and compassionate care to all New Yorkers, regardless of circumstance.
Every year, the home health care and community services VNSNY offers help transform the lives of New Yorkers in need. Your contributions are critical to our mission. Donations allow us to provide a broad range of patient care and support services, research programs, and charitable care initiatives that benefit the community and safeguard the health of New Yorkers in need.
Every donation helps.
