Hospice of Central PA Recognized for Commitment to Vietnam-Era Veterans For Immediate Release
Hospice of Central PA (HCP) is pleased to announce that they have achieved Level 5 partner program status in the We Honor Veterans Program. The We Honor Veterans program, is a collaboration with the Veterans Administration (VA) and the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO).
In addition to meeting all other program requirements, Level 5 partner programs, like Hospice of Central PA, have demonstrated an emphasis
on staff education and caring for Vietnam-era and combat Veterans. Additionally, Level 5 partners will be taking on the role of regional mentor to other We Honor Veterans partners working to enhance their programs.
Broadly speaking, the We Honor Veterans program empowers hospices and community organizations to meet the unique needs of America’s Veterans and their families by offering guidance and resources focused on respectful inquiry, compassionate listening, and grateful acknowledgement so that Veterans can be guided toward a more peaceful ending.
“We are excited to expand our service to veterans in our community to include a special focus on Vietnam era vets”, said HCP Chief Executive Officer Gil Brown, “This achievement of Level 5 is the result of a lot of hard work and dedication by our Veterans Committee and we’re all deeply grateful for their efforts.”
The Veterans Committee at HCP is made up of staff from almost every department in the organization, veterans and community volunteers. They meet throughout the year to plan recognition of service events, offer specialized training, and ultimately serve and honor America’s Veterans and their loved ones at the end of life.
