Dear Friends of RVNA:
RVNA is your VNA!
RVNA is your non-profit provider of community-based medical and non-medical health care, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
We are Medicare and Medicaid certified. RVNA offers skilled nursing services, physical therapy and other rehabilitation services, community health & wellness programs such as our aging-in-place program (Quality Living at Home), travel medicine services, pediatric services and public health & safety programs. We also offer live-in and hourly caregivers through HomeCare by RVNA.
An increasing number of people want to receive medical care in their homes, and RVNA services are in greater demand now than ever. From care following an illness or injury to chronic disease management, RVNA gives the young, the elderly, the disabled, the chronically ill and the terminally ill high quality compassionate healthcare where they want it most – at home.
And now we also offer a full suite of rehabilitation therapies in our on-site Rehab by RVNA facility in downtown Ridgefield. This unique out-patient center offers physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and more all under one roof.
With each new heartwarming patient experience and community health program RVNA provides, we feel privileged to lead an organization with an unwavering focus on quality, safety and compassionate care. Throughout the year, our organization has responded to the evolving American health care paradigm. We have developed a patient centered model of services in which individuals and communities are educated on health and wellness practices, patients with acute and chronic conditions are provided vital care in their homes, and community outreach programs are in place to help individuals remain healthy over the long term.
One of our goals is to develop meaningful, strategic and collaborative programs focused on reducing hospital re-admissions and health care costs. To make this a reality, we continue to work closely with area hospitals, physicians and payer partners to fulfill our mission of promoting the highest quality of life in Western Connecticut.
Families and their physicians choose RVNA because of the exceptional care we provide. Our services and programs continue to expand to meet area health care needs and our commitment to improving the health of individuals throughout the greater Western Connecticut area remains strong, as it has for nearly a century. We provide not only what our patients and communities need today but anticipate what their future health care needs will be. This makes RVNA unique.
After celebrating our 102 year anniversary, we look forward to continuing our tradition of providing exceptional healthcare services, when and where you need them. We hope you will choose RVNA because RVNA is YOUR VNA. Ask for us by name…
