Karen Ann Quinlan Hospice is a Level 5 Partner with We Honor Veterans, a program of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization. Level 5 is the highest level WHV partners can attain and includes several new required activities and yearly recertification.
As a partner, Karen Ann Quinlan Hospice is providing specialized care to Veterans who are facing a life-limiting illness. Aside from existing partner requirements, Level 5 partners place a greater emphasis on staff education and caring for Vietnam-era and combat Veterans. Additionally, Level 5 partners take on the role of regional mentor to other WHV partners working to enhance their programs.
“When we set out to create the Level 5 program we knew that it had to be different to truly showcase the efforts needed to go above and beyond. Not only Karen Ann Quinlan Hospice demonstrated commitment, but your organization has helped shape the program and continue as an example of what all hospice partners should strive to be,” said NHPCO President & CEO Edo Banach.
It is our mission at Karen Ann Quinlan Hospice to provide diligent care that displays the gratitude, respect, and honor that everyone deserves at the end-of-life. Being a champion for Veterans means more than just shaking hands and saying “thank you” on Veterans Day. Our efforts relay a message not only to the Veterans under our care but to the family, caregivers, and community that we strive to provide the best to our nation’s heroes.
