Visiting Nurse Association
The health of a community depends upon its ability to work toward common health goals and upon adequate distribution of health resources to all of its members. Since 1910, the Visiting Nurse Association (VNA) has worked collaboratively with Dubuque's private and public sectors, to reduce the spread of infectious disease, see that infants and children are properly immunized, educate people regarding healthy lifestyles, promote oral health, provide supportive services to elderly in their homes, offer parenting support, and so much more. Since 1997, the VNA has provided Public Health in Clayton County through the Elkader VNA office.
Over the years, the services offered by the Visiting Nurse Association have changed concurrently with the changing needs of the community and our service area has grown. The VNA of Dubuque currently has offices in Dubuque and Elkader, Iowa and collaborates with agencies in Allamakee, Delaware, and other northeast Iowa counties to serve their residents.

Relationship with Finley
Since 1996, the VNA has operated as a subsidiary of Finley Tri-States Health Group, Inc., the parent organization of UnityPoint Health - Finley Hospital. This affiliation offers purchasing and support service advantages to the VNA while allowing it to remain a separate company with its own governing board of directors and its own fund-raising activities. As a non-profit organization, the VNA relies on state, federal, and local funding.

Since 1987, DRA has helped the VNA fulfill its mission by providing funding for programs and structural improvements for building. This funding has allowed the VNA to focus on our primary mission for a healthier community.
Medication Safety & Management Program
The UnityPoint Health - Finley Health Foundation was the recipient of a $4,170 grant from the Dubuque Racing Association, which will benefit the Dubuque Visiting Nurse Association's Medication Safety & Management Program. This grant provides the VNA with the ability to distribute locking medication boxes to elderly or disabled clients in need, which will allow those clients to safeguard medications and address their health needs.
