“We Bring the Caring Home” (Visiting Nurse Service of New York)
The Visiting Nurse Service of New York has a long, distinguished history (since 1893). The business slogan is a new once (since 1996).

I've seen a lot of the visiting nurses, and I just wish I had a better legal solution for their parking tickets! Only doctors can get permits, but how many house calls do they make these days?

http://www.vnsny.org/a_history.html
Over 110 years of caring.

The Visiting Nurse Service of New York was founded in 1893 by two young nurses, Lillian Wald and Mary Brewster.

At the time, the Lower East Side of Manhattan had the densest population in the world with 1,000 people per acre. Most of the residents were impoverished immigrants who had come to America from Europe with little more than their dreams. They had settled on the Lower East Side of Manhattan with others who shared their cultural backgrounds - people who spoke the same languages, ate the same foods. Many of the immigrants lived in tenements and worked in gruesome sweat shops where the hours were long, the work hard, and the wages pitiful. Sickness was rampant. Because many of the sick could not afford to leave their jobs or their families in order to be hospitalized, 90% of the sick lived at home.
