The health system honors patients who are military veterans with an American flag pin, bedside thank you card, door hanger placed outside the patient’s room to identify him/her as a veteran and meal trays that have specially designed place mats and table tents.

Edward-Elmhurst also has an annual event to recognize employees, physicians and volunteers who are active duty or retired military veterans.
