Veterans often carry experiences from their military service that present unique health care challenges, and unfortunately, many of them may not know about, or have access to, specialized care. To help provide veteran-centric care and support that reflect the important contributions made by these men and women, Samaritan Evergreen Hospice participates in We Honor Veterans, a pioneering campaign developed by National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) in collaboration with the Department of Veterans Affairs.
As a Level Four Community Partner, Samaritan Evergreen Hospice has:
• increased its professional and organizational capacity to provide quality services for veterans and their families;
• developed and strengthened partnerships with other hospice providers Veterans Affairs, veteran organizations and other health care organizations;
• promoted hospice and palliative care for veterans; and
• demonstrated the impact of its veteran-centric organizational programs.
“We congratulate Samaritan Evergreen Hospice for attaining We Honor Veterans Level Four status,” says NHPCO President & CEO Edo Banach. “We Honor Veterans partners are committed to providing quality veteran-centric care to the veteran patients they serve. These organizations have achieved advanced training and have demonstrated elevated proficiency in providing the support these patients need. They understand how a veteran’s military service, combat experience or other traumatic events, could impact their end-of-life experience.”
Though Samaritan Evergreen Hospice has reached the highest achievement in We Honor Veterans, their ongoing commitment and dedication to veterans ensures they will continue to provide the best quality of care to those who have served our country.
