Private duty nursing and home health aide services from pediatrics to young adults.

“All services are performed in the home or school and include management of tracheostomy, ventilator programs, gastronomy care, seizure disorders, cerebral palsy, intellectual and developmental disabilities, and congenital anomalies.”

The Foundation

In 1986, VNG was established and successfully served as a nurse-staffing agency for hospitals until 1995. On September 17, 1995, VNG became Medicare Certified and refocused on adult home care due to great demand. Over the next few years, an even greater need for pediatric home healthcare existed. Many of the large insurance companies called VNG requesting care for their pediatric patients. The requests were so enormous that VNG made a strategic management decision to forego home care for adults and concentrate on pediatrics.

Today, VNG is one of the largest pediatric private duty home healthcare nursing agencies servicing the 5 major counties in Pennsylvania (Philadelphia, Montgomery, Chester, Bucks, and Delaware counties).

The Mission

The mission of the Visiting Nurse Group is to provide high quality home care services and education to those patients with high-tech and specialized healthcare needs regardless of race, color, national origin, handicap, age, or religious creed.
