About Us



Wagner Nurses and Medical Personnel agency has been providing home care to New Yorkers for over 40 years. The Wagner agency has always been and remains family owned and operated, a proud distinction in the world of health care conglomerates. As one of the oldest home care agencies in New York, Wagner is highly respected and holds a reputation for excellence among physicians and hospitals.

The former director of Wagner, Ms. Joan Kavanagh, was ahead of her time when she started the agency to provide New Yorker’s with an “intelligent alternative to skilled nursing homes.” That was over 40 years ago when people needing nursing care and home care support remained in the hospital of went to a nursing home.

The present director, Ms. Therese Power, carries on this tradition of excellence to fulfill today’s increased demand for people in need of nursing care, once only administered in hospitals. Ms. Powers is a staunch “patient advocate” and will continue to provide the best home care personnel to New Yorkers for years to come, from one family to another.
