The longest-serving VNA in the state of New Jersey
2023 marks 125 years since VNA’s first nurse, Anna B. Hillock, traveled dirt roads to visit patients in their homes. This incredible milestone celebrates our core values of ensuring the health and well-being of the community we serve across six counties.
From nursing to therapy to hospice at home or at our inpatient unit, we have never wavered or let pandemics and natural disasters disrupt our work. We've always been there, providing unparalleled, personalized home health care solutions. We thank everyone who has been part of this journey and look forward to the next 125 years of trusted home health care.
Did you know that in 1898, Anna and the care she provided was funded by charitable contributions? Since then, we’ve relied on the support of our community to ensure that the care our patients and caregivers need is provided regardless of their ability to pay. Please consider making a donation in celebration of our anniversary by visiting vnannj.org/donate or calling VNA Foundation at 973-451-4148.
