Shalom Hospice-Veteran Partnership
Hospice-Veteran Partnerships (HVP) are coalitions of Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) facilities, community hospices, State Hospice Organizations, and others working together to ensure that excellent care at the end of life is available for our nation’s Veterans and their families. These coalitions may be community-based or statewide and may function independently or within an existing structure. HVP is a national program of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Hospice and Palliative Care Initiative. Shalom Hospice is proud to be apart of the We Honor Veterans Program.
The mission of HVP is to establish an enduring network of hospice and VA professionals, Veterans, volunteers, and other interested organizations working together to provide quality services through the end of life for Veterans. The purpose of HVP is to provide leadership, technical assistance, and program development recommendations. Our goal are to improve Veterans’ access to hospice and palliative care across all sites and levels of care to assure that every Veteran is able to receive hospice care at the time and place of need. Strengthen the relationships between Shalom Hospice and VA facilities and also initiating comprehensive end-of-life community engagement plans designed to reach as many Veterans that we can.
