Our History

1918-1919 — Humble Beginnings

The Great Flu Epidemic of 1918-1919 hit Kenosha particularly hard, with 6000 reported cases in the city during the month of October.  Assistance was provided in controlling related health problems by Public Health Nurses.

By 1927, the former head of the Kenosha City Health Department was named head of the State Board of Health. He requested that the superintendent of nurses at the Kenosha Health Department began a Kenosha Visiting Nurse Service. The Kenosha Evening News reported on April 20, 1927 that one nurse, Miss Sigrid Jorgensen, was given free transportation on city street cars for making her house calls to the bedside of any patient in the city.

Caring for babies delivered at home during the Great Depression, teaching family members how to care for a sick patient and giving instructions on the prevention of illness was all part of a day in the life of a visiting nurse in the 1930’s. The service cost a dollar an hour for the first hour and fifty cents if the nurse stayed longer.

The Visiting Nurse Service gradually grew until doctors and home folk alike were finding it impossible to be without it by the early 1940’s. Patients began to look forward to the weekly visit of the visiting nurse, not only for providing care but companionship. The role of the nurse included lifting the spirits of the patient as well as caring for their physical needs.

A letter written by a patient in 1976 could easily have been written in 2016…

“They helped me when I needed it so badly and could not get it from anyone else. They helped me care for my husband and keep him home as long as possible. They were at our home every morning, bathed him, changed the bed, helped him walk if possible, anything they would have done for their own.

I have seen them on duty on Sundays and holidays, taking care of diabetic patients, I have seen them in freezing weather come to the house braving the wind and icy walks.  I have seen them during the worse storm of the winter… yes they came.

They do not rush their calls, being very sure before they leave the home that everything is done that they could help you with. They keep a thorough and accurate chart of all their patients checked and rechecked many times.

Their sympathy is so real, so true, what a great comfort they bring and what great love they have for everyone. Kenosha is truly fortunate to have the Visiting Nurses. Just give them a call if you are in need, you will see for yourself. God bless them all.”

The agency has remained true to its mission and has been able to survive the uncertainty of an ever changing health care environment and stand strong as the only local visiting nurse association in our community.  KVNA’s longevity is its strength which has inspired confidence in those entrusted to our care.

The team concept is embraced throughout organization.  From the highest level, we all work for the good of the patient, the family and the community.

Changes in reimbursement and staunch competition has reduced the viability of many of the ancillary programs and services provided the by agency.  The commitment and dedication to quality home health care continues to be the focus of KVNA, its clinicians and leadership.
