In 1908, one female nurse provided more than 3,000 visits to 219 patients under the Woonsocket Anti-Tuberculosis Association, now known as Visiting Nurse of HopeHealth. She did not have a car, or any other means of transportation - she reached these 219 patients on foot. We are proud of our 107 year tradition of caring.
