1946 - Humble beginnings

In 1946, a small group of engaged community members gathered to create an organization that would provide skilled nursing in the home with a mission to promote health and independence. From these humble beginnings to the strong, vibrant agency of today, the Visiting Nurse Association & Hospice of the Southwest Region continues to remain focused on our mission of providing compassionate, nationally recognized home health care, hospice care, and community wellness to thousands of individuals throughout Rutland and Bennington Counties in Southwestern Vermont.
