New Name, Same Great Service

In the future, you may see materials or hear conversation that refers to our service Home Care Nursing, or HCN. This change comes after a reform was proposed in legislation this past session and signed into effect on July 1 to change this service name from Private Duty Nursing Service (PDNS) to Home Care Nursing. However, rest assured that you can still expect the same comprehensive, specialized care that has been provided since we began this service.

This was an industry-wide change, with the new name clarifying and modernizing the terminology in a way that better reflects the work our in-home nurses do to care for and provide services to complex patients at home every day.

If you have any questions about our Home Care Nursing service, please donít hesitate to contact us by calling 651-642-1825 and asking for any available HCN staff person.
