We hold those who have served our country in the deepest regard, and it is our privilege to serve them in return.
VNSNY is a proud participant in the We Honor Veterans program, which was created by the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization in collaboration with the Department of Veteran Affairs. Our staff has received special training to ensure that veterans from all branches of the military receive the best possible care. Through this program, we are able to provide care that addresses the unique needs of veterans and their families, and also integrates clinical practices to enhance the care they receive. We are experienced in caring for service-connected injuries and illnesses such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), survivor’s guilt, depression, and substance abuse, and we can help identify community services and veteran-specific benefits, as needed.
VNSNY Hospice and Palliative Care is proud to have achieved the We Honor Veterans Partner Level Five status, the highest level a hospice provider can achieve. This “Five-Star” distinction was granted by the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization, and acknowledges our dedication to ensuring that veterans have access to quality hospice care. VNSNY is the only hospice provider serving all five boroughs to achieve Level Five We Honor Veterans status.
As part of the We Honor Veterans program, VNSNY holds special recognition ceremonies, where veterans are presented with a Certificate of Merit in front of family and friends. Veterans may also receive assistance in planning military memorials, and their families receive access to grief support groups and bereavement programs.
