HONOR FOR VETERANS

The Veterans Honor Program Committee at CoxHealth is currently working on the Final Salute, a program for veterans who die at CoxHealth hospitals. In the Final Salute, staff members will line the hall as the patient is moved from the unit, similar to the Path of Honor ceremony provided for organ donors. Veterans will be draped with a ceremonial American flag for the salute.
