The Valley Hospital Receives Platinum-Level Recognition from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for Promoting Organ Donation

 
  

November 27, 2017 — For a second consecutive year, The Valley Hospital was recently awarded platinum-level recognition for promoting enrollment in state organ donor registries in a national Workplace Partnership for Life hospital campaign, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). 

The Workplace Partnership for Life hospital campaign is a special effort of HRSA’s Workplace Partnership for Life to mobilize the nation’s hospitals to increase the number of people in the country who are registered organ, eye, and tissue donors and ultimately, the number of organs available for transplant. As part of the campaign, The Valley Hospital partnered with the NJ Sharing Network, a local organ procurement organization, to conduct awareness and registry campaigns that educated staff, patients, visitors and community members on the critical need for organ, eye and tissue donors, and thereby increased the number of potential donors on the state’s donor registry.

“We’re proud to partner with the NJ Sharing Network in supporting this national campaign to increase awareness about the critical need for organ and tissue donors,” said Bettyann Kempin, Assistant Vice President for Medical and Surgical Services at Valley. “According to the NJ Sharing Network, nearly 5,000 New Jersey residents are on the waiting list for a life-saving transplant. One donor can have the potential to save several lives. ”

To earn platinum-level recognition, Valley had to earn a certain number of points for each campaign activity implemented between October 2016 and April 2017. Less than one third of 1,000 hospitals and transplant centers participating in the campaign received platinum recognition.
