About Us

Established in 1891, Visiting Nurse Association (VNA) is a nonprofit home health agency. We offer a wide range of in-home services for people in and around Kansas City. As a United Way agency, we welcome all qualifying patients regardless of ability to pay.

Our 125-year legacy of excellence in home health comes from our belief that people not only need someone to care for them, they also need someone to care about them. That's what we do at VNA, and our patients say it's one of many things that set us apart.

As the oldest home health agency in Kansas City and the sixth oldest in the United States, we have history and experience patients can trust. We are accredited by The Joint Commission and governed by a volunteer board of directors that includes many of Kansas City's most influential business and civic leaders. VNA nurses and therapists average more than ten years of patient care experience, with three to five years experience in home health care.

Through our dedication to the health and wellness of this community, we deliver positive clinical outcomes that exceed national averages. We use the latest technology available to meet the changing needs of our community.

What we do for our patients may be complex, but our mission is simple: to bring exceptional health care into the homes of everyone we serve.

The Joint Commission's Gold Seal of Approval  Visiting Nurse Association has earned The Joint Commission's Gold Seal of Approval.
