Christa Hojlo, "creating environments where the very best can happen for people"

By / Posted on November 11th, 2011

Christa Hojlo, National Director for VA Community Living Centers, Veterans Health Administration, speaks here at the opening celebration about why the VA sees the Green House model as a long-term alternative to traditional nursing homes. 

She reflects, that we are creating an environment where our veterans can thrive and grow and where the staff can grow in new ways.  It puts the power in the hands of the veteran and those working closest with them to meet their needs, whether that be a stack of pancakes, or anything else that will support the veteran in meeting his/her highest potential.
