Cornerstone Hospice and Palliative Care has attained the highest level of accreditation, Level 4 status, with the We Honor Veterans program, a national initiative in collaboration with the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization and the Department of Veterans Affairs.“Cornerstone Hospice now serves 80 new military veterans each month with our specialized end-of-life care,” said Chuck Lee, CEO of Cornerstone Hospice. “The achievement of the ‘fourth star’ demonstrates Cornerstone’s commitment to providing the best level of care to men and women who have sacrificed so much for our nation.”

Established in 2010, the Cornerstone Salutes! program honors local veterans with a ceremony, led by a specially-trained U.S. veteran volunteer, tailor-made for the veteran patient and family. During the ceremony, the veteran patient is presented with a special pin and certificate of appreciation. Approximately 40-50 ceremonial pinnings are held each month throughout Cornerstone Hospice’s seven-county region.
