Recognizing those who serve


As part of our U.S. military and veteran recognition efforts, we can now identify our patients who are veterans or active service members during the patient registration process in our acute care facilities.

To support our new recognition program, guest services will run a report each morning to identify veteran and active service patients. They will work with volunteer services to place a special American flag greeting card on the patients’ doors. If you pass one of these cards, please take the time to sign the card to say, “thank you.”

The cards hang just below the room number as a way to honor and show recognition to our patients who have sacrificed and selflessly served their country in the United States Armed Forces. 

Team members who care for the patient, or others who would like to show their appreciation, are encouraged to write a quick note or sign their name.
