Achievement in Organ & Tissue Donation #LSN_Health
Thunder Bay, ON – December 1, 2016 (LSN) Trillium Gift of Life Network has presented Thunder Bay, Health Science Centre, Hospital with an achievement award for its dedication to organ and tissue donation in Ontario.

Our Hospital received the Provincial Benchmark for Conversion Rate Award for meeting or exceeding the target set by Trillium Gift of Life Network. Conversion Rate is the percentage of actual organ donors from the total number of potentially eligible organ donors identified upon deceased health record review. Key factors that influence Conversion Rate are the notification of potential organ donors and working with Trillium Gift of Life Network to promote optimal approach planning.

“Organ and tissue donation is life-saving and life-enhancing”, said Jean Bartkowiak, President & CEO of the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre (the Hospital) and CEO of the Thunder Bay Regional Health Research Institute. “This award highlights the dedication of our staff, physicians and volunteers to ensuring that organ and tissue donation continues to be a vital tool to help us provide exceptional patient care for Northwestern Ontario.” Continue reading
