Renee McInnes

CEO at NVNA and Hospice

Renee McInnes has served as Chief Executive Officer of Norwell Visiting Nurse Association and Hospice (NVNA) since July 2016. Launched in 1920, NVNA is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. The agency, which has a daily census of 600 patients, currently serves 27 communities across the South Shore, providing skilled home care, palliative care, telehealth services and hospice care, including managing the elegant Pat Roche Hospice Home in Hingham.

McInnes is a registered nurse with over 30 years of clinical and management experience in home care and acute care settings. She began her career as an intensive care nurse at Tufts Medical Center and went on to hold multiple roles at NVNA and Hospice before landing in her current leadership position.

“I’m honored to work alongside so many incredible nurses, physicians, therapists and other vital clinicians who have dedicated their lives to promoting health and wellness on the South Shore,” says McInnes, who was named chair of the board of directors by South Shore Chamber of Commerce earlier this year. McInnes also serves on the Board of Home Care Alliance, is an Executive Committee member for the Visiting Nurse Association of New England and serves on the National Association of Home Care Advocacy and Government Affairs Council.

A graduate of the Suffolk University Emerging Leaders Program and Harvard Business School’s Leadership for Senior Executives Program, McInnes spends much of her time focused on NVNA’s strategic plan and furthering the agency’s mission alongside key stakeholders.. Thanks to her extensive on-the-job experience and cool-under-fire demeanor, she is perfectly positioned to guide NVNA into its second century of service on the South Shore.
