VNA names nurse to be intake coordinator


The Vineyard Nursing Association (VNA) announced that April McCarty has joined the staff at the VNA as the new Nurse Intake Coordinator. The Intake Coordinator is the bridge between physicians and hospitals and the VNA’s home health care services, according to a press release, and it is the first time a nurse has filled that position.

“Having a nurse in this position is a shift for the VNA in response to the growth in demand for services and the level of complications that many cases present,” CEO Bob Tonti said. “April’s nursing background, coupled with her experience with running a business made her a perfect candidate for this position.”

Ms. McCarty is from Akron Ohio and has a background in pediatric home care. Her previous experience focused on children born with multiple birth defects.

She coordinates referrals and prepares all related paperwork for home visits. In addition to her office duties, Ms. McCarty makes home visits to the VNA’s patients.
