For over 100 years, IVNA has provided high quality compassionate home health care, case management and advocacy for persons in need. From a small group of visiting nurses concerned about the lack of access to health care to a ground-breaking partnership with home health care agencies in the greater Richmond community, IVNA continues to improve the lives of our patients by providing the high-quality, low-cost care to those in need.
