we-honer-veteransSmoky Mountain Home Health and Hospice has achieved “We Honor Veterans” Partner Level Three.  Hospice-Veteran Partnerships (HVPs) are coalitions of community hospices, Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) facilities, end-of-life care and community organizations, and others working together to ensure that excellent care at the end of life is available for our nation’s Veterans and that support is available for their families.

The national HVP program is a joint effort of the VA Hospice and Palliative Care Program and the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization. We Honor Veterans (WHV) provides resources to promote Veteran-centric educational activities, increase organizational capacity to serve Veterans, support development of strategic partnerships, and increase access and improve quality.
