About Us

Your home, our exceptional care

VNS Westchester helps adult and senior patients live as comfortably as possible in their own homes. Our skilled nursing, rehabilitation, home health aides, social work and care coordination services reduce the risk of emergency hospitalizations and the need for other institutional care.  Our compassion and concern for our patients’ welfare gives families the peace of mind that their loved one is in good hands.

We bring to your home our experience and resources as the largest independent, not-for-profit, Medicare-certified home healthcare agency in Westchester that also serves the Bronx, Dutchess, Putnam and Rockland counties.  Founded in 1901, we have long been recognized for our personalized approach to patient care, for being immediately available when needs arise, and for our commitment to taking on even the most complex cases.

We are accredited by CHAP (Community Health Accreditation Program), which indicates that we exceed nationally recognized standards of excellence. VNS Westchester has also achieved a 4-star rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for providing better than average patient experience of care in 2016. This rating is based on surveys of our patients, indicating that they value the care and responsiveness of our talented team.

Our services are covered by Medicare, Medicaid and most patient insurance plans.
