About VNA of Philadelphia
VNA Philadelphia was founded in 1886, by Helen Carnan Jenks, as the Visiting Nurse Society of Philadelphia (VNS). She learned about England's district nurses service from a friend and wondered if such a service could be started in Philadelphia. That same year, VNA Philadelphia enlisted the assistance of physicians who gave the fledgling organization needed credibility within the medical community. By the end of the first year, the VNS served over 300 patients.

The visiting nurses brought quality health care; provided maternity care, hygienic instruction, and preventative education. In the decades to follow, the VNS grew to be a critically important component of health care in Philadelphia. Epidemics of influenza, tuberculosis, poliomyelitis and America's entry into World War I sorely taxed the city's health care system. In each instance, the VNS worked to meet Philadelphia's health care needs by providing prevention, treatment, and education.

Today, operating as VNA Philadelphia, the organization serves a wide range of patients in both the city and neighboring suburbs, by providing comprehensive home health, palliative, and hospice care.
