Heartland Hospice & We Honor Veterans Partnership


By becoming a We Honor Veterans (WHV) Partner, Heartland Hospice is able to recognize the unique needs of America’s Veterans and their families as well as learn how to accompany and guide Veterans through their life stories toward a peaceful ending. There are four levels of partnership that a hospice can achieve; to get started, a hospice must first enroll as a Recruit to become oriented and commit to the WHV program.

Hospices can achieve the next level of the WHV program by completing activities listed below for each level:

  • Level 1: Provide Veteran-centric education for staff and volunteers, and identify patients with military experience
  • Level 2: Build organizational capacity to provide quality care for Veterans
  • Level 3: Develop and strengthen relationships with VA medical centers and their Veteran organizations
  • Level 4: Increase access and improve quality of care for Veterans in your community

By becoming a We Honor Veteran Partner, hospices will be better prepared to:

  • Build professional and organizational capacity to provide quality care for Veterans
  • Develop and/or strengthen partnerships with VA and other Veteran organizations
  • Increase access to hospice and palliative care for Veterans in their community
  • Network with other hospices across the country to learn about best practice models
