Accreditation and Mission

Why Choose Visiting Nurse Health System?

Patient Testimonials

Accrediting Organizations

The Joint Commission sets standards for best practices by ranking an organization’s clinical, management and leadership strengths. The Commission also looks at financial stability and sustainability, and the strength and makeup of the board of directors. Visiting Nurse Health System is one of only a few organizations in Georgia that has accreditation for both our healthcare at home services and our hospice services. We believe the stamp of approval from The Joint Commission is proof of the outstanding quality of our home health and hospice programs.

The Joint Commission also offers education in best practices that helps us continually evaluate and improve our services and operations. Our interdisciplinary team knows the importance of Joint Commission accreditation and the high standards it requires. You can feel confident in the care your patients and families will receive with us.
