The Visiting Nurse Association of Albany,
Saratoga & Rensselaer (VNA), a certified
home health care agency, recently relocated
their Saratoga County office to 517 Broadway,
The new location is centrally located
in the county, and provides a convenient
base for VNA clinicians who serve patients
who reside in Saratoga County, officials
said. The VNA has been serving patients
in Saratoga County since the early 1980s.
The office is managed by Teresa Bravata, RN, a resident of Saratoga Springs, and is the clinical operations hub for the skilled nursing and rehabilitation therapist staffs, home health aides, LPN support staff, and clinical managers that services patients in their Saratoga County homes.
“We are delighted to have our offices in a landmark location in the historic and vibrant city of Saratoga Springs,” said Susan Larman, VNA’s CEO. “We welcome the opportunity to continue to provide skilled nursing and rehabilitation services to an expanded patient population, and have the visibility that this office location provides.”
She said the VNA has deep roots in the region, dating back to 1880, so it’s fitting that the new location has its own history in Saratoga. Built in 1936, the building operated as a theatre until 1980, and then eventually was converted to office and retail space over the past 20 years.
