PROMOTING THE GIFT OF LIFE


VIRGINIANMN | Angie Riebe


HIBBING — Fairview Range Medical Center was honored nationally for its efforts to promote the gift of life.

It was among a select group of hospitals nationwide recognized for advocating enrollment in state organ donor registries in a campaign sponsored by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA).

The campaign has added 400,000 donor enrollments to state registries nationwide since 2011.

Fairview Range conducted awareness and registry campaigns to educate staff, patients, visitors, and community members about the critical need for organ, eye, and tissue donors. It thus increased the number of potential donors on the state’s donor registry.

The hospital earned points for each activity implemented between May 2015 and April 2016.

It was awarded platinum recognition through the HRSA Workplace Partnership for Life Hospital Campaign. Of the 995 hospitals and transplant centers participating in the campaign, 281 were awarded platinum recognition during this phase of the campaign. Continue reading
