Salute to Veteran Patient Week

National Salute to Veteran Patients

The National Salute to Veteran Patients takes place during the week of February 14 every year. This year, it takes place from February 11 to 17. The purpose of the holiday is to honor and pay tribute to the brave military veterans who receive medical care at Veterans Affairs (V.A.) medical facilities. The holiday also seeks to create more awareness about the importance of VA medical facilities and encourage more people to visit and volunteer. 

Stay tuned to  our social media pages for more information and pictures from events.

Some events planned for the week include: visit from Nuggets' mascot and dancers on Feb. 10, lapel pin distribution from ECHCS leadership to Veterans on Feb 13, Cupcakes on the concourse on Feb. 14 from 10 to 11 a.m., Soldiers Angels on the concourse Feb. 15,  visit from Buckley Space Force leadership on Feb. 15, visits from the Aurora Fire Chief and R2D2 on Feb. 16, and the Battl'in Betties will be here Feb. 17.
