Heartland Hospice, a division of ProMedica, announced their promotion to a Level Five partner within the We Honor Veterans program for their continued care and support of the veteran population. Level five is the highest level We Honor Veterans partners can attain and includes several new required activities and yearly recertification.
We Honor Veterans was launched by the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization in collaboration with the Department of Veterans Affairs to help improve the care veterans receive from hospice and palliative care providers. The program provides five levels of recognition to organizations that demonstate a commitment to improving care for veterans. Level Five partners place a greater emphasis on staff education and caring for Vietnam War-era and combat veterans. Additonally, Level Five partners take on the role of regional mentor to fellow We Honor Veterans partners working to enhance their programs.
