Hospice
Hospice Cleveland County has become a
national partner with the “We Honor Veter-
ans” program, according to Patti Ellis Mc-
Murry, Vice-President of Access.
The program is a pioneering campaign
developed by the National Hospice and Pal-
liative Care Organization in collaboration
with the Department of Veterans Affairs.
McMurray said that Hospice Cleveland
County will implement Veteran-centered ed-
ucation for its staff and volunteers to help im-
prove the care they provide for veterans they
proudly serve. All hospices are serving vet-
erans but the new program makes them more
aware of that person’s service in the Armed
Forces. The “We Honor Veterans” is taking a
giant step forward in helping hospice and
palliative care providers understand and
serve Veterans
