Patient Care Services Committee

Patient Care Services Committee

As a health care organization, one of our core values and beliefs is our commitment to provide the highest quality care to our patients.  


This core belief is also shown through the Patient Care Services Committee, which is a committee of the VNA Board of Directors. Its purpose is to provide guidance and oversight to the organization for quality patient care.

The committee members include physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, an elder law attorney, healthcare executives and clinical management staff.  These individuals volunteer their time because they believe in the mission of the organization and are committed to giving back to the St. Louis community.
