Visiting Nurse Home & Hospice
Home » About Us » Awards


Visiting Nurse Home & Hospice, formerly as Visiting Nurse Services of Newport and Bristol Counties, has received many awards and citations for excellence in the home care industry. The most important and significant is the HomeCare Eite Award, citing VNS in the top 25% of all home health agencies in the United States for 2014! Based on standardized metrics submitted by over 10,000 agencies, VNS is one of the only top 25% based on each of the metrics. This prestigious award has not been awarded to our community competitors.

VNS is also particularly proud of its high patient satisfaction measure from patient surveys. We have scored 95% in patient satisfaction with our services!  Go here to see the survey.

Most recently, the Home Health Quality Improvement association has awarded us with a certificate of participation in this important service improvement group.

CMS awards VNS of Newport and Bristol Counties 5 Star in Patient Experience of Care. This is the highest rating possible for patients reviewing a home care agency about their own experience.

In August 2013, the VNS became a national partner with the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization in collaboration with the Department of Veterans Affairs in the We Honor Veterans campaign.
