McKean County VNA & Hospice Partners with VNA of Western New York To Form New VNA of Northwest PA

The VNA is in the neighborhood. We serve patients in Northwest PA. We'll be there for you when and where you need us.


McKean County Visiting Nurse Association & Hospice, a department of Bradford Regional Medical Center, and the Visiting Nursing Association of Western New York (VNA of WNY) have partnered to form the new organization, VNA of Northwest PA.

As a result of this agreement, the McKean County VNA & Hospice has transferred its operating license and certificate as well as their employees to this new joint venture. 

“While we have created a new home healthcare entity, many things remain the same. VNA of Northwest PA will operate in McKean County and the surrounding region. McKean County VNA & Hospice employees have transitioned directly to the new agency,” said Timothy J. Finan, president and chief operating officer of Upper Allegheny Health System, Bradford Regional Medical Center and Olean General Hospital. The agency has a staff of 30 local employees.

Office operations will continue to be based out of the current office on East Main Street in Bradford and Kathy Pascarella, administrator of McKean County VNA and Hospice, will continue as administrator of the new VNA of Northwest PA.

“All of us understand and appreciate the benefits to both our Bradford and Olean hospitals that have been occasioned by the creation of the Upper Allegheny Health System. Similarly, VNA of Northwest PA will be an organization of significantly larger scale that will provide us with access to a greater pool of resources,” Finan said. “While our VNA provided approximately 14,000 visits annually, VNA of WNY provides more than 400,000 annual home healthcare visits. As such, we are better positioned to provide more efficient and effective care. This new partnership ensures that area residents retain access to high quality homecare services for years to come."
