VNA names Dr. Carole Patrick, experienced leader in philanthropy, development, as CEO

Visiting Nurse Association (VNA) has named Dr. Carole Patrick, a longtime VNA leader with a history in philanthropy, development and communications, as its next CEO.

Patrick joined VNA in 2017 as vice president of development and communications, and in 2022 was named chief philanthropy officer. The promotion also positions Patrick as the CEO of Easterseals Nebraska, a subsidiary of VNA that provides exceptional services to people with disabilities.

“I’m honored to lead VNA and Easterseals Nebraska, two organizations that serve as foundational community resources,” Patrick said. “VNA has long provided high-quality health care and supportive services to under-resourced individuals and families through the tireless work of our nurses, staff and partners. I’m eager to build upon this long tradition of community care.”

VNA offers a wide range of community-based services including home health aide services, parenting support, immunizations, shelter nursing and school health programs.
