Professional Nursing Service, located in Cuyahoga Falls, is celebrating its 30th year of being in the home health care business. The local agency operates out of its offices on State Road and provides home care in eight counties.
The owner and CEO, Diane Vishnia, MSN, RN is a graduate of the University of Akron and established the home care business in 1986 as a result of a research project while working on her master's degree in clinical nursing. Starting as a "one man band," the agency soon grew, thanks to the referral base of several local physicians, many of whom Ms. Vishnia worked with while employed at Cuyahoga Falls General Hospital (now known as Western Reserve Hospital.).
Professional Nursing Service is Medicare-Medicaid certified and and accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation for HomeCare. It also has been named a national best practice agency and recently received the HHCAPS "Patient Satisfaction Award of Distinction 2016" which is based on overall patient satisfaction.
