Windber hospital to focus on care for veterans

“We will officially begin to introduce VeteranCare, a new niche of WindberCare at Chan Soon-Shiong Medical Center at Windber,” Windber Medical Center president and CEO Barbara Cliff said. “VeteranCare is being developed as a type of Planetree patient-centered care that responds to the unique needs of veterans within an acute care hospital.” As the only Planetree patient-centered care hospital in Pennsylvania and one of only 12 Planetree designated hospitals in the world, Windber Medical Center is uniquely positioned to enhance the inpatient and outpatient care of veterans from a mind, body and spiritual perspective, Cliff said. As for those veterans who are currently cared for within the VA system, she said the hospital will continue to support that setting for their primary care. “Windber Medical Center is proud to be instituting VeteranCare within our Planetree patient-centered care environment. It is an honor to care for veterans and to extend thanks and appreciation to those who have been willing to make the ultimate sacrifice in protecting our country,” she said.
