  • Moving Our Mission Into the Community
    The mission and vision of the River Valley Nursing Center has been consistent for over a decade. Then and now, we strive to serve those vulnerable individuals and families in our community by providing supportive and compassionate individualized health-related services with access to community resources. The uniqueness of our care model, is that our services are provided by Minnesota licensed Public Health Nurses with the help of Bi-lingual Spanish Interpreters/Community Outreach Workers. Through nursing assessments, health-education , referrals and follow-up, we can assist our families in reaching their health goals.

    Because our model is community-based and very flexible in its delivery, we are able to bring our services “into the community” where our families live and work. Some of our community outreach activities include: Project Community Connect, coordination of flu clinics at community churches, and health screening/education in various community locations. Prevention through education and community connections continues to be the strength of our Nursing Center as well as our dedicated staff, board members, collaborators, funders, and friends. We look forward to continuing to serve those in need for many years to come.
