New All Care headquarters changes Lynn landscape

The Connector by Meaghan Casey A century ago, with one nurse making more than 260 home visits to patients in one year, All Care VNA & Hospice established its roots in Lynn.   Though the expanse of the agency’s services, reach and employee base has dramatically changed – wiht more than 600 employees caring for 11,500 patients in 2010 – two things have not:  its commitment to providing affordable, quality health care at home and its commitment to the City of Lynn.
