Our doors opened in 1920 as the Norwell Visiting Nurse Association charged with bringing essential health service and education into the home of our community. One nurse, Catherine Roe (shown here) provided all the health assistance for the town of Norwell.
Today, Norwell VNA has evolved into the NVNA and Hospice, offering over 27 communities on the South Shore a variety of home health and hospice care, cancer support and educational services, a hospice residence, numerous support groups and wellness clinics, and private care services. Our team is comprised of over 200 clinicians, professionals, para-professionals and support services personnel.
