PM Wins 2014 Pennsylvania Donate Life Hospital Challenge

HAPEarlier this year, the Hospital & Healthsystem Association of Pennsylvania (HAP) partnered with the Pennsylvania Department of Health, the Center for Organ Recovery and Education (CORE), and the Gift of Life Donor Program to create the 2014 Pennsylvania Donate Life Hospital Challenge. Teams from throughout the Health System hosted several activities to educate staff members, patients and their families, visitors, and the extended community on the critical need for organ donation and to provide opportunities for people to sign up as organ, eye, and tissue donors.

Teams captured those activities on a scorecard in an effort to achieve platinum, gold, silver, and bronze level point totals. HAP recognized Penn Medicine as the health system with the Highest Total Points Achieved!
