River Hospital has joined other area hospitals, healthcare organizations, and Finger Lakes Donor Recovery Network to create a donation-friendly community through the Workplace Partnership for Life Hospital Campaign for organ donation. This national initiative sponsored by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services challenges healthcare organizations to educate employees, patients, visitors, and the community about the crucial need for organ, eye, and tissue donation and give them opportunities to sign up as donors. More than 492,000 people have added their names to state registries through this campaign.
We need your involvement and support to reach our goal of registering new organ, eye, and tissue donors in our state registry between October 1, 2019 and April 30, 2020. For each donor we register and each activity we implement to promote organ, eye, and tissue donation, we’ll earn points toward national recognition from HRSA.
And please take a few minutes today to add your name to our state’s donor registry. Someday you may save a life. Visit organdonor.gov to find out how.
