Hospice of the Western Reserve Achieves Highest Rating for Veterans Program

​Hospice of the Western Reserve provides specialized care to veterans through its Peaceful & Proud program. This year, HWR was the first hospice in Northeast Ohio to achieve “level 5 partner” status from We Honor Veterans (WHV), a joint initiative of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization and the Dept. of Veterans Affairs (VA). This designation – the highest available - requires the completion of several activities, a greater emphasis on staff education and care plans addressing the complex needs of Vietnam era and combat veterans. As a level 5 partner, HWR also takes on the added role of serving as a regional mentor to other hospice organizations. Yearly recertification is required.
