Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration, the campaign brings together National Partners, local and regional organ, eye, and tissue donation organizations and hospitals throughout the nation to educate employees and hospital communities on the importance of organ, eye, and tissue donation.
According to MHP CEO Jay Christensen, the goal of the campaign is to register 300,000 new registered organ donors in April. “It is incredibly important to support this donor registration campaign,” Christensen said. “A wonderful gift can be given during an extremely difficult family time that could improve life for others.”
MHP has partnered with the Iowa Hospital Association and the Iowa Donor Network to bring the Hospital Donor Registration Campaign to Iowa. Suzanne Conrad, CEO at Iowa Donor Network said, “We have enjoyed a close relationship with Iowa’s hospitals in identifying potential donors. We are pleased that Mahaska Health Partnership in Oskaloosa is taking additional steps to educate and increase donor registrations in their service area.”
