Mission & History

Nascentia Health was originally envisioned as a way to bring all of the programs and services provided by Visiting Nurse Association of Central New York, Inc., CCH Home Care & Palliative Services, Inc. and Independent Health Care Services, Inc. together under one umbrella. Since its inception, the system continues to embrace every opportunity to better meet the changing medical and non-medical needs of those throughout the region. Most recently, Nascentia Health launched VNA Homecare Options, LLC, a Managed Long Term Care (MLTC) Medicaid plan for those eligible for a nursing home level of care, added Home Aides of Central New York, Inc. to our system and began operating an Adult Day Program—all of which have been designed to enhance our range of offerings and develop a healthcare system that is unique and progressive.

It is the mission of Nascentia Health to be the premier home and community-based care system for the regions we serve.

The Nascentia Health goal of maintaining, restoring and promoting the health and independence of those we serve is achieved by utilizing our agency and community resources, by working collaboratively, and by providing the proper environment for the development and retention of caring, competent staff.​

Our goal is to make it as simple as possible for people to receive all the care they need, where they want it most – at home.
