Logan Regional Medical Center joins campaign to register organ, eye, and tissue donors
Our Hospital has joined other area hospitals, healthcare organizations, and CORE to create a donation-friendly community through the Hospital Organ Donation Campaign. This national initiative sponsored by the Heath 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 443,000 people have added their names to state registries through this campaign.
We need your involvement and support to reach our goal of registering 5 new organ, eye, and tissue donors in our state registry before April 30, 2019. 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.
We are asking the entire Logan Regional community to help us educate staff members, patients, and their families, visitors, and the extended community on the critical need for organ donation. If you are interested in becoming actively involved in this effort, contact Teresa McNeely at 304.831.1870 or Cindy Fleming at 304.831.1556.
And please take a few minutes today to add your name to our state’s donor registry. Someday you may save a life. Visit https://donatelife.wv.gov/ to find out how.
