Belmont Community Hospital accepts their Gold Award

Lifeline of Ohio is among a select group of organ procurement organizations nationwide recognized by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) for working with hospitals and transplant centers in its service area to conduct activities that promoted enrollment in state organ donor registries. Lifeline of Ohio and these facilities are part of the national Workplace Partnership for Life Hospital Campaign, sponsored by HHS’s Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). Working together, teams leverage communications resources and outreach efforts to proactively promote the critical need for donors.

Lifeline of Ohio recruited hospitals and transplant centers to participate in Phase IV of the campaign and worked with them to plan awareness and registry activities focused on increasing the number of organ, eye and tissue donors. Facilities earned points for each activity implemented between August 1, 2014 and April 30, 2015, and were awarded gold, silver, or bronze recognition by HRSA.

Of the 1,658 hospitals and transplant centers enrolled in the national campaign, 736 were awarded recognition during this phase of the campaign. These numbers represent a 29 percent increase in enrollment and a 56 percent increase in recognition over Phase III and, according to HRSA, are “a tribute to the work that so many have dedicated to this effort. Most important, since launching in 2011, the campaign has added more than 350,000 donor enrollments to state registries around the country, far surpassing the original goal of 300,000.”
