To celebrate the fifth anniversary of We Honor Veterans, the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization awarded the We Honor Veterans Award of Excellence to Gentiva Hospice of Evansville and Jasper.
The award was presented last month at the National Hospice Palliative Care Organizations’s 16th Clinical Team Conference and Pediatric Intensive in Grapevine, Texas.
The award is given to recognize the investment, commitment and achievement of a hospice partner who provided outstanding quality end-of-life care to veterans and the families they serve.
Gentiva Hospice We Honor Veterans practices include honoring veteran patients and families, engaging staff and volunteers in Honoring Veterans activities and collaborating with local Veterans Affairs offices.
Also, Gentiva Hospice formed the 133rd Honor Flight Hub ≠ó Honor Flight of Southern Indiana. Since its creation more than a year ago, more than 200 veterans have flown to Washington, D.C., to visit memorials and be honored for their service.
