About Us

Berks Visiting Nurse Association has been providing unrivaled home health care to individuals and families since 1909. The organization began with a group of nurses who wanted to help reduce infant mortality. The group relied solely on the simple nursing care methods known in the early 1900s. Today, our staff uses the most advanced medical technologies to bring a variety of health care services that help patients stay healthy, safe, and home. We are one of a select few free-standing VNA’s remaining in Pennsylvania.

Berks VNA is an independent, voluntary, nonprofit home health organization registered in Pennsylvania. All services are available without regard to race, religion, creed, color, age, ancestry, national origin, sex, sexual preference, lifestyle, socioeconomic status, veteran’s status or handicap.
