The history of visiting nurses in Worcester is one of caring. The idea of hiring a single professional visiting nurse to serve the city of Worcester originated 1892 from Dr. Homer Gage, a surgeon at Memorial Hospital. Through several name changes and growth over the decades, VNA Care became what it is today through the charitable support of the community and leadership focused on transforming care to improve lives.
“VNA125: A History of Caring” celebrates 125 years of service to Worcester. This exhibit highlights VNA Care’s archives with photos, uniforms and medical instruments from their many years of service.
The exhibit will be open until August 31 in the Booth Gallery.
