In 2017, the Visiting Nurse Service of New York—together with generous supporters, community partners, and VNSNY employees—provided nearly $47 million in charitable care and community benefit programs. These wide-ranging programs improved the lives of tens of thousands of New Yorkers, young and old, and provided free and discounted direct home care services to more than 8,500 under- and uninsured individuals.
The $47 million in community benefit impact shown in the chart above represents the total amount spent by VNSNY and our philanthropic partners on delivering charitable care and community benefit programs. It includes services funded by public grants (city, state, and federal), development (gifts and grants from private donors, employees, foundations, and corporations), and VNSNY’s charitable care contribution (the cost of community benefit programs paid for by VNSNY). This total does not include reimbursements to the programs from Medicaid, Medicare, and Managed Care organizations.
As indicated, the largest amount of community benefit funding went to Community Mental Health Services, programs for children and families—including our Maternity, Newborn and Pediatrics program and our Nurse-Family Partnership—charitable care for the under- and uninsured, and support for Hospice and Palliative Care initiatives.
