Concord Regional VNA and Central New Hampshire VNA and Hospice complete their merger

Published: 4/7/2021 5:03:59 PM

The joining of two regional visiting nurse associations has been completed and the newly named Granite VNA is now serving 82 communities throughout the greater Concord and Lakes regions.

The not-for-profit Granite VNA is a merger of Concord Regional Visiting Nurse Association and Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice of Laconia and Wolfeboro. Granite VNA will provide home- and community-based healthcare via some 470 clinical and staff members.

Both groups have deep roots in the region. Concord Regional VNA was formed in 1899 as the Concord District Nursing Association. Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice was formed in 2010 through the merger of Community Health & Hospice in Laconia and the VNA & Hospice of Southern Carroll County in Wolfeboro, both of which dated back to the first decades of the 20th century.

The agencies began the merger process in March 2020 as the coronavirus pandemic began, and completed the merger on March 31, 2021.

Granite VNA will be governed by a board of trustees comprising members of the former Concord Regional VNA and Central NH VNA boards. Beth Slepian, former president and CEO of Concord Regional VNA, will serve as President and CEO, and Lisa Dupuis, former CEO of Central NH VNA, will serve as Chief Operating Officer.

Granite VNA’s main office is located at The Slusser Center, 30 Pillsbury St.. in Concord, and the agency will maintain branch offices in Laconia and Wolfeboro. For more information, see granitevna.org.
