LightBridge Attains Partner Level 4 in We Honor Veterans Program

LightBridge Hospice & Palliative Care has just attained Partner Level 4 in the We Honor Veterans program. To reach this pinnacle level, LightBridge focused on increasing access to and improving the quality of care Veterans received in the San Diego community. Many steps were taken, including increasing the integration of Veteran-specific education for staff and volunteers, evaluating the Veteran-to-Veteran Volunteer Program, developing resources to help our Veterans and their families’ access benefits, along with continually evaluating and implementing better ways to improve care and service to Veterans and their families throughout the organization.

To date, LightBridge is one of only a dozen hospices in the US, the only one in California, to attain the We Honor Veterans Partner Level 4.
