About Us

Our History

Since 1904, the Visiting Nurse Association of Somerset Hills has been providing much needed home health and hospice care, adult day services and wellness programs to our community.

It all began when parish nurse, Miss Lillian Nichols, offered her nursing services to the sick and poor of Bernardsville and surrounding towns. A committee was formed to direct the nurse and be responsible for her services to the community of Somerset Hills, including the the towns of Bernardsville, Basking Ridge, Gladstone, Mendham Borough and Chester Borough. In 1906, this founding committee was incorporated as the Visiting Nurse Association, one of the first 100 such organizations in the United States.

Over the decades, our organization, range of services and service area continued to expand to meet the growing need for patient-centered and quality-focused home and community health care.

Throughout our history, volunteer-led fundraising programs have given essential support to our efforts to fulfill our charitable mission. Our semi-annual Rummage Sale, oldest and largest in New Jersey, has become a famous community tradition that attracts loyal shoppers from throughout the region.

Today, we remain committed to providing the same exceptional patient care experience that has been the cornerstone of our community-focused service since 1904. We work tirelessly to ensure that our patients, their caregivers, and their families receive the health services, education, guidance and support they need on their journeys.
