2017 Pennsylvania Donate Life Hospital Challenge | #HAPchallenge
HAP has partnered with the Pennsylvania Department of Health, and the
Center for Organ Recovery & Education
and Gift of Life Donor Program—the two
organ procurement organizations serving Pennsylvania, to support the 2017
Pennsylvania Donate Life Hospital Challenge.
The Pennsylvania Donate Life Hospital Challenge encourages
Pennsylvania hospitals to increase organ donation awareness and designations
within their hospital and community.
The awareness and designation activities are captured on a
scorecard for participating hospitals to achieve titanium, platinum, gold, silver, and
bronze level point totals.
HAP encourages Pennsylvania hospitals to participate in the
2017 Pennsylvania Donate Life Hospital Challenge, which begins April 1, 2017,
as part of National Donate Life Month.
The 2017 challenge ran from April 1 to August 31.
More than 8,400 Pennsylvanians await organ transplants and thousands of others await tissue transplants. Nationally, more than 121,000 men, women, and children are waiting for a life-saving organ transplant.
Twenty-one of them die each day because an appropriate match
was not found in time. One organ, tissue, and eye donor may save up to eight
lives and help more than 50 people.
