The use of these technologies has helped reduce the number of hospitalizations and emergency room visits.

We have been helping people get better and teaching them to better manage their health care since 1946. We have a track record of well-established, trusted relationships with our patients and families, our referral sources and community partners.

The trust placed in us is evident in the number of people who turn to us for care. Last year:

  • VNA & Hospice of the Southwest Region made more than 87,000 home visits to more than 2,500 patients.
  • We provided end-of-life care to 214 patients and their families.
  • In addition, 2,800 flu and pneumonia vaccines were administered to community members throughout Rutland and Bennington counties, with offices in Bennington, Dorset and Rutland
