Our Mission

We create moments and experiences that heal individuals and families, by providing compassionate care, and by putting health, dignity, comfort and well-being first. We are a non-profit organization and it is our privilege to serve you and the communities in which we live.



CNS was established in 1928 to provide nursing care for sick people in their homes as an alternative to hospitalization. CNS began as a voluntary non-profit agency, when the existing Visiting Nursing Association of Salt Lake and the Private Duty Registry were combined. In 1930, Salt Lake Community Nursing Services became a participating agency of the Community Chest, later to be known as United Way.

Today, we employ over 650 associates in 9 locations from Logan to St. George.
