VNA Home Health Hospice, an affiliate of EMHS and Mercy Hospital, is an organization known for providing clinically excellent, compassionate home health and hospice care to individuals and families. VNA is presenting Driven – an art event to showcase Maine artists while raising awareness for VNA and the importance of home health care. 

“Understanding that home health care and home hospice care is an integral part keeping our aging population healthy and comfortable is important,” explains Colleen Hilton, CEO of VNA Home Health and Hospice.  “We help families though difficult journeys by hiring the best leaders in their field who believe in our mission: to provide clinically excellent, compassionate home health and hospice care to individuals and families.  This necessary care can create a financial burden for some families, and our goal is to alleviate some of that stress with the community’s support of Driven.”
