About VNA & Hospice

Since 1951, the not-for-profit VNA has provided a wide range of home health care, serving Monterey, San Benito, Santa Cruz, and South Santa Clara counties. VNA places an emphasis on individual patient needs and goals, providing care in an ethical, effective, compassionate and fiscally responsible manner.

VNA Community Services brings wellness to the community. Well known as community immunizers; experienced, professional registered nurses provide on-site flu and vaccine services.

As the only travel health clinic, VNA provides comprehensive consultation and immunizations for international travelers. Health screenings and education are offered to corporate business, in the field or in the boardroom. Nurses provide services to local schools to meet state-mandated screenings, vaccines, and staff education.

Our organization provides intermittent care, covered primarily by insurance, through the expert skills of our trained and certified clinicians, to assist patients, families, and caregivers in the comfort and familiarity of their own homes.

The home health division offers key specialty program, including cardiac, connections, diabetic, orthopedic, and palliative care.  These individual programs have advanced practice clinicians and program expertise.

VNA Hospice is a specialized type of care for those facing a life-limiting illness, their families and their caregiver.  The care involves a team-oriented approach to expert medical care, pain management, and emotional and spiritual support expressly tailored to the patient’s needs and wishes. A key component to our team is VNA Volunteers who give their time to improve the lives of others.  For the community, grief and loss support are offered to individuals or groups.
