We Honor Veterans
Center for Hospice Care is proud to be part of the “We Honor Veterans” program, a collaboration between the Department of Veterans Affairs and the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization. Its purpose is to raise awareness among veterans of the end-of-life services and benefits available to them.
“One out of four dying Americans today is a veteran,” noted Mark Murray, CHC President/CEO. “Our goal is to address their end-of-life needs, to serve them as they have served us.”
Center for Hospice Care has achieved the Level 5 designation, in the “We Honor Veterans” Partner program. As a Level 5 partner, we integrate veteran-specific content into our staff and volunteer orientation and education. Center for Hospice Care is one of only 25 such programs in the nation. Eleven of those programs were Pilot Partners and 14 have met the qualifications since it was announced in February 2019.
We also proud to now be an official Vietnam War Commemorative Partner with the Department of Defense.
