Community Nursing and Home Health began in December 2005 as a home health agency committed to quality care to patients as its FIRST priority.

In November of 2012 Community Nursing became part of UPMC Visiting Nurses Association. This partnership has allowed Community Nursing to become part of a world-class health system.

The employees of Community Nursing and Home Health are proud of the services they provide by putting patients first, providing quality care and services to patients where they live, and by giving patients a choice as to whom they invite into their homes to provide the care they need, when they need it. Community Nursing has been recognized as a Home Care Elite organization and Patient Satisfaction Honor recipient.

Whether you need skilled nursing care, rehabilitation services, wound therapy or any of the other services we are able to provide, Community Nursing and Home Health is dedicated to helping patients recover safely and in the comfort of their own home.

An extension of your doctor's care
All services are provided under the specific orders of the patient's physician. Care includes assessment of the patient's home care needs ranging from infancy to geriatrics; provision of home treatment/therapy/counseling; education of patient/family/significant other; and appropriate discharge planning.

Patient needs are identified through information given at the time of referral, professional evaluation on the initial visit, ongoing assessment, and through physician orders.
