Concord Regional Visiting Nurse Association

Concord Regional VNA is the largest home health and hospice provider in central New Hampshire. With more than 380 employees, our not-for-profit, community-based agency serves people of all ages by providing homecare, hospice, personal home services, maternal and child health services, pediatrics, and community health services.

The mission of Concord Regional VNA is to improve the health of the people and communities it serves by managing illness and promoting wellness through all stages of life. Our vision is a community where wellness and well-being is achieved through compassionate care to those in need. Many of our patients in our service area have advanced illnesses. As a result, our agency strengthens its existing services and develops new programs such as our Complex Care Program to help these patients remain in their homes, improve their quality of life, and decrease avoidable re-hospitalizations and emergency department use. Our agency opened the first Hospice House in the state in 1994 where patients who have a terminal illness can receive 24-hour end-of-life care. Additionally, we offer more than 100 wellness programs through Community Health Services including many that focus on end-of-life care such as the Capital Area Memory Café and the Dying to Talk Café.

Our Home Care Transitional Care Nurses were named Best Nursing Team runner-up in the newest 2015 issue of ADVANCE for Nurses magazine! Judges ranked essay applications of more than 100 nationwide teams on adaptability, expertise, outreach, and initiative. Transitional Care Nurses visit patients who are at risk for re-hospitalizations or are considered complex by medical diagnosis, have multiple medications or medication issues, or lack home support systems or call their physician's office frequently. The goal of the program is to enhance the care experience for patients, improve population health, and reduce the overall cost of health care. It is well-documented that medication mismanagement is a leading cause of hospitalizations and re-hospitalizations within the first week after discharge.
