VNA Coordinator

April McCarty has joined Vineyard Nursing Association as the nurse intake coordinator, the bridge between physicians and hospitals and the VNA’s home health care services.

“Having a nurse in this position is a shift for the VNA, in response to the growth in demand for services and the level of complications that many cases present,” said chief executive Bob Tonti.

Ms. McCarty comes from Akron, Ohio, where she operated a one-woman pediatric home care agency. At VNA, she coordinates referrals, prepares all paperwork for home visits, and makes home visits to the VNA’s patients.
