NVNA and Hospice Celebrates 100 Years

NVNA and Hospice
A Century of
Home. Health. Care.

Our Founder, Amy Sylvester, knew that her South Shore neighbors needed quality healthcare when she started in 1920.

What she may not have imagined is that, one-hundred years later, the healthcare professionals at  NVNA and Hospice would still provide home health and expand palliative care, hospice care, wellness and public health services across 27 Massachusetts communities. The historic Pat Roche Hospice Home had yet to be built when we began.

Still, the spirit of providing the most advanced care possible to our family, friends, and neighbors continues today. We are proud to celebrate 100-years of service and cannot wait to grow our non-profit mission for another century.
