Beloit Regional Hospice Receives Level 2 We Honor Veterans Designation
Recently, Beloit Regional Hospice received a Level 2 Designation within the We Honor Veterans Program. BRH joined the We Honor Veterans program in 2013 based on the realization that America’s Veterans and their families have unique care needs, and because the organization provides the opportunity to reflect the important contributions made by these men and women. The We Honor Veterans program was developed by the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization in collaboration with the Department of Veterans Affairs. There are 4 levels within the We Honor Veterans program, with the 2nd designation noting that the group has ‘Built organizational capacity to provide quality care for Veterans.’ Another requirement, for the Level 2 designation, is partnering with other Veterans organizations. These partnerships act as a support system for patients as well as staff members. Hospices can ‘earn their stars’ by completing activities for each of the 4 levels of commitment. This enables VA staff and Veterans to easily identify hospices that have made a commitment to offer Veteran-specific care. The We Honor Veterans program is extremely important, as it helps provide Hospice professionals guidance as they are caring for Veterans who are facing unique challenges due to illness, isolation or traumatic life experience.
Congratulations to the We Honor Veterans Committee members, who worked diligently to achieve this designation, Mark Maxted, a veteran of the United States Air Force, Ralph ‘Rocky’ Plomb, a veteran of the United States Navy, Nicole Morgan, Julie Pryce, Karen Johnson-Hurd, Sherrie Swanson, Adena Dutter and Anne Burger. The work you do is appreciated!
