Pictured is McLeod Health Veteran Andre Benjamin, a CT Technologist at McLeod Health Cheraw. He served in the U.S. Army from 1977 to 1983.
During the week of Veterans Day, McLeod Health honors its Veterans by displaying pictures of staff who have served the United States in all branches of military service. The displays can be seen in the Cafeteria on all campuses through November 15.
McLeod Hospice also honors its patients who are Veterans through the “We Honor Veterans” program, a nationally sponsored Hospice Veteran Partnership. When the Hospice team learns that a patient is a Veteran they arrange a “Veteran to Veteran” pinning ceremony at the patient’s home, assisting living facility, nursing home or in the McLeod Hospice House to thank them for the sacrifices they have made and the courage it takes to defend honor, duty and country. The program has been very well received and to date 300 McLeod Hospice patients have been pinned.
Thank you to all the men and women who serve our country selflessly and protect our freedom.
