The Mount Desert Nursing Association is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization, and provides services to any person or family living on Mount Desert Island.

MDNA provides on-going regular visits for persons with chronic health problems, and also provides short-term care and support to persons who may need just a few visits to help them with a current time-limited problem.  Preventing a hospitalization is always a goal.  Potential patients do not have to be house-bound to take advantage of our private pay nursing visits and other care.
