As the largest home health and hospice provider in New Hampshire, our not-for-profit, community based agency offers people of all ages a wide range of personalized services and programs, including home care, hospice, palliative care, personal home services, pediatric and maternal child health services, and wellness programming.
Concord Regional Visiting Nurse Association serves more than 8,000 (last FY) patients throughout Concord and 43 surrounding communities.
The mission of Concord Regional Visiting Nurse Association is to improve the health of the people and communities it serves by managing illness and promoting wellness through all stages of life.
Concord Regional Visiting Nurse Association is headquartered at 30 Pillsbury Street in Concord, NH.
“A merger between Concord Regional Visiting Nurse Association and Central New Hampshire Visiting Nurse Association and Hospice would make us a stronger organization that can deliver the highest quality care to all of the communities we serve. It would enhance our abilities to recruit and retain the most talented employees, offer career opportunities, provide leading-edge therapies in home environments, expand clinical specialties, and serve more people in need.”

Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice
Formed through the merger of Community Health & Hospice in Laconia and the VNA & Hospice of Southern Carroll County in Wolfeboro, Central New Hampshire VNA and Hospice is the oldest and largest VNA in the New Hampshire Lakes Region, serving 47 towns.
The mission of Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice is to promote dignity, independence, and well-being through the delivery of quality home health, hospice and community based care services.
Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice offers in-home healthcare services including home care, rehabilitation services, pediatric care, education and support services for children and families, and a comprehensive, team-based hospice program. We are the only agency in the region to offer in-home pediatric health care and hospice services, as well as a special ‘Pet Peace of Mind’ pet care service for our patients on hospice to alleviate the worry of caring for their pets.
“In this challenging time of changing payment structures, the changing status of our local health care providers, and our state’s aging population, Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice is dedicated to exploring new ways to meet our mission of promoting dignity, independence and well-being to local residents while continuing to provide high quality home health, hospice and community based care services we are known for. By exploring an affiliation with Concord Regional Visiting Nurse Association, we hope to be able to reduce costs, increase the number and types of services we are able to offer our local residents, and retain, educate and recruit top-notch staff to serve our local communities.”
