We Honor Veterans
3HC is now a 4-Star Partner of the We Honor Veterans Program! This program is a national awareness campaign that was developed by the National Hospice & Palliative Care Organization in collaboration with the Department of Veteran Affairs.
Dean Lee, President and CEO of 3HC shared, “I am thankful for the opportunity for 3HC to serve our Veterans across the eastern half of North Carolina, which is the home of Freedom made possible by their sacrifices. My congratulations to the 3HC family for achieving Level 4 in the We Honor Veterans Program. This distinction is earned by those dedicated to care for those who haven given their lives in service to this great country we call home.”
3HC is already working towards earning a fifth and final star, in an effort to better serve our very deserving veterans. 3HC’s geographical footprint touches all of the military posts in our state. Our activity reflects our organization’s commitment to ensuring Veterans have access to quality end-of-life care.
We Honor Veterans provides educational tools and resources in advancing these goals, including promoting veteran-centric educational activities, increasing organizational capacity to serve veterans, supporting development of strategic partnerships, increasing access, and improving quality.
The We Honor Veterans program invites hospices, state hospice organizations, Hospice-Veteran Partnerships, and VA facilities to join a pioneering program focused on respectful inquiry, compassionate listening, and grateful acknowledgement. By recognizing the unique needs of America’s veterans and their families, community providers, in partnership with VA staff, learn how to accompany and guide them through their life stories toward a more peaceful ending.
By participating in community partnerships and collaborations, partner organizations, such as 3HC, are able to educate, engage, and expand awareness to veterans and their families.
The goal of the program is simple – to care for and honor those who have served when they reach the end of life.
