We Honor Veterans

We Honor Veterans

Medilodge of Capital Area has become a Community Partner Recruit of We Honor Veterans, a pioneering campaign developed by the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) in collaboration with the Department of Veterans Affairs. As a We Honor Veterans Community Partner Recruit, Medilodge of Capital Area will implement ongoing Veteran-centered education for their staff and volunteers to help improve the care they provide to the Veterans they proudly serve.  The nation is seeing many of the Veterans who served in World War II and Korea pass away—and the number of deaths of Vietnam Veterans is beginning to rise. The We Honor Veterans campaign provides tiered recognition to organizations that demonstrate a systematic commitment to improving care for Veterans. “Recruits” can assess their ability to serve Veterans and, using resources provided as part of the campaign, integrate best practices for providing care to Veterans into their organization.
