JACKSON, Calif.—November 2, 2017—Hospice of Amador & Calaveras has earned the National Hospice & Palliative Care Organization’s highest level of achievement, Four Star Level, in NHPCO’s We Honor Veterans program. Each level requires evidence of support and services to an agencies’ population in the form of a comprehensive report detailing its work. Level 4’s overarching criteria is to “Increase access and improve quality of care for Veterans in your community.” Since joining the program five years ago, HOAC has served 402 veteran patients and their families.

NHPCO said of HOAC’s achievement, “Your latest report reflects your organization’s continuing commitment and dedication to ensuring Veterans have access to quality end-of-life care, appreciated by all of us at NHPCO and the hospice community at large.”

Renee Davis, coordinator of the WHV program at HOAC said, “We are deeply grateful to American Legion Ambulance, American Legion Post #108, Auxiliary & Riders for their ongoing partnership, generosity, and assistance to us, and to our dedicated vet-to-vet volunteers in achieving this level of recognition from NHPCO, for our community’s veterans.”
