VNA Options Becomes Nascentia Health Options


As a part of a reorganizational effort that began in the fall of 2017, Nascentia Health is pleased to announce that their program formerly known as VNA Options will now become Nascentia Health Options. While the program will remain the same, the name will reinforce the unification of the Nascentia Health system, guided by true collaboration and shared vision.

Nascentia Health President and CEO Kate Rolf said, “This new system looks to the future of home healthcare in our community while honoring our history and reflecting our continued commitment to providing exceptional care.” She added, “Unifying all of our existing resources into one cohesive healthcare system was an inevitable and strategic step to ensure that we’re best positioned to fulfill our mission today, and well into the foreseeable future.”

Coined “a healthcare system without walls,” Nascentia Health Options takes a holistic approach to patient care, addressing immediate needs, supporting positive long-term medical and lifestyle choices, and leveraging leading edge in-home care approaches and technologies to improve outcomes and quality of life.
