St. Mary's honored nationally for promoting organ donation

DAILY INDEPENDENT

St. Mary’s was among a select group of hospitals nationwide honored for promoting enrollment in state organ donor registries in a national campaign sponsored by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Health Resources and Services Administration. The campaign has added 400,000 donor enrollments to state registries nationwide since 2011.

St. Mary’s conducted awareness and registry campaigns to educate staff, patients, visitors and community members about the critical need for organ, eye and tissue donors and, by doing so, 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 and was awarded platinum recognition through the HRSA Workplace Partnership for Life Hospital Campaign. Continue reading
