Anthony Damiano

Clinical Manager of Therapy Services, Leadership Staff

A native of New Jersey, Anthony's journey in healthcare began with a Bachelor of Science in Physical Therapy from Quinnipiac College in 1991. It was during an 8-week clinical rotation with the Visiting Nurse Association of New Britain, Connecticut, that he discovered his true calling in-home care—a passion that would shape his career.

In pursuit of this passion, Anthony relocated to York, PA, and embarked on his physical therapy profession, immersing himself in a variety of settings while always maintaining a connection to home care. In 2005, he found his home at the VNA of Hanover and Spring Grove, initially as a contractor, before transitioning to full-time employment as a staff therapist in 2015. His unwavering dedication to the VNA's mission and its positive impact on the community led him to assume the leadership role of Clinical Manager of Therapy Services in 2023.

Anthony's personal life is as vibrant as his professional journey. He shares his life with Melanie, his beloved wife and fellow healthcare professional whom he met at the VNA. Together, they cherish a blended family of eight children and three grandchildren.

In his leisure time, Anthony finds solace and rejuvenation in the great outdoors. A seasoned adventurer, he delights in hiking, camping, and canoeing, often seeking the tranquility of nature to recharge his spirit. His adventurous spirit led him to spend nine weeks living off the grid in a self-built shelter at Jack Mountain Bushcraft in the Maine woods in 2019. In 2022, he embarked on another thrilling journey, paddling 100 miles on the Allagash River and 30 miles on the east branch of the Penobscot River, all while cooking over an open fire every night and navigating his canoe through the day.

Beyond his outdoor pursuits, Anthony indulges in a variety of hobbies, including beekeeping, baking bread, and exploring his culinary talents in the kitchen.

With boundless enthusiasm for life and a deep-rooted commitment to community care, Anthony embodies the spirit of service that defines the VNA's mission.
