Reduce re-hospitalizations with VNS Westchester

Today, with shorter hospital stays, escalating costs and longer life spans, healthcare providers are looking to home healthcare agencies to help maintain patients at home and reduce instances of re-hospitalizations. With our century-plus legacy of excellence in patient care, VNS Westchester’s re-hospitalization rate is among the lowest of home healthcare agencies in the region.

Join hundreds of providers who entrust VNS Westchester with the health and well-being of their homebound patients. Our skilled nurses, rehabilitation therapists, medical social workers and home health aides help implement your treatment plan and serve as your eyes and ears in the patient’s own environment, improving safety, monitoring medication, and instructing patients on self-care and lifestyle changes.

In addition to our basic coordinated services, we offer  specialty services to care for complex and chronic conditions, such as cardiac disease, advanced wound and ostomy care, rehabilitation services, mental health home care and dysphagia, as well as pain management and palliative care. We also offer leading-edge programs in chronic disease management, smoking cessation, and TeleHealth monitoring.

Through our Physician Services Program, we assist you with the entire patient referral and care coordination process. Our liaisons in local hospitals and skilled nursing facilities ensure the seamless transition of your patients from institutional care to their homes.
