We Honor Veterans

Mary Washington Healthcare Hospice Services has achieved Level II with We Honor Veterans, an innovative program developed by the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization in collaboration with the Department of Veterans Affairs.

We Honor

It surprises many Americans to learn that every day, 1,800 Veterans die. That’s more than 680,000 Veterans every year – or 25 percent of all the people who die in this country annually. A generation of World War II and Korean War Veterans are facing end-of-life care decisions now, and they are quickly being followed by younger Vietnam War Veterans, many of whom are confronting serious illnesses at an even earlier age.

The liberty that we, as US citizens, enjoy comes at a price paid by these valiant men and women. Let each of us make sure we do our part to recognize and support them throughout their lives.

If you know a Veteran who is in need of the special care hospice and palliative care brings to people facing serious and life-limiting illness, please reach out and help them learn more about the services that hospice and palliative care can provide. Contact Mary Washington Healthcare Hospice Services at 540.741.3580 or e-mail to learn more about the ways we support our nation’s heroes.

Veterans Day Pinning Ceremonies

Each Veterans Day, as part of the We Honor Veterans partnership, Mary Washington Healthcare Hospice Services associates, along with active-duty military volunteers, honor veterans residing in local long-term care facilities by pinning them with an American flag pin, thanking them for their service.

Thank you for your dedicated service
