Help Penn Medicine Save Lives

Donate-LifeRecently, Penn Medicine joined The Hospital & Healthsystem Association of Pennsylvania (HAP) Donate Life Hospital Campaign. Sponsored by HAP, the campaign brings together state partners, local and regional organ procurement organizations, and hospitals statewide to increase the number of registered organ, eye and tissue donors. This campaign goes until August 31, 2013. In the weeks ahead, you’ll be hearing more about Penn Medicine’s participation in this important campaign, so please stay tuned. In the meantime, please take a few minutes to add your name to our state’s donor registry. Someday you may save a life. Visit to find out how.

The Benefits of Saving a Life

Eligible employees may request a Bone Marrow/Organ Donation leave of absence when the employee intends to donate bone marrow, stem cells or a major organ to another person. Eligible employees will be paid regular time. No vacation, personal or sick time will be utilized. Time off will not be counted towards the employee’s leave entitlement. The amount of time off granted will be determined on a case by case basis, depending on the type of donation to be made.

Interested employees may contact the Disability Management Office at 215.615.2630 for additional information.
