Community Nursing Services

Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

Community Nursing Services (CNS) was established in 1928, to provide nursing care for sick people in their homes as an alternative to hospitalization. CNS began as a voluntary, non-profit agency, when the existing Visiting Nursing Association of Salt Lake and the Private Duty Registry were combined. In 1930, Salt Lake Community Nursing Services became a participating agency of the Community Chest, later to be known as United Way.

Through the CNS Senior Wish program we were able to provide a memory for some of our patients, one patient had her hair done, one patient had a dinner with family and friends and one patient recently went river rafting.

CNS has served Carbon and Emery counties for over 13 years and is a CHAP (Community Health Accreditation Program) and is the only VA contracted home health provider. CNS has won Best of State awards in 2010 and 2011. CNS is a community -based, not-for-profit, full service home care corporation composed of four operating divisions, CNS VNA Home Health- Medicare certified and skilled home care, CNS Home Health Plus - non-skilled services, CNS Pharmacy- IV and nutrition support, CNS Community Hospice- Certified hospice that includes Palliative Care program and a proud partner with United Way.
