St. Joseph’s Healthcare System joins campaign to register organ, eye, and tissue donors!
Story Number is : 041117100
St. Joseph’s Healthcare System

Recently, St. Joseph’s HealthCare System joined other area hospitals in the Let Life Bloom campaign, which challenges hospitals to educate employees, patients, visitors, and the community about the crucial need for organ, eye, and tissue donation. We encourage individuals to register as donors and provide them with opportunities to sign up. The campaign, which has helped to register nearly 400,000 people to state registries, aims to add more donor designations by May 2017.

Every day new people are added to the national organ transplant waiting list that is now about 120,000 people whose lives depend on an organ transplant. This week more than 150 of them will die because not enough organs are available.

In recognition of our 150th Anniversary, we set a goal to register 150 new organ donors to the state registry to contribute to the national goal and to earn national recognition from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) for conducting activities that promote enrollment in state organ donor registries.

We are seeking your involvement and support. Please take a few minutes today to add your name to our state’s donor registry. Someday you may save a life. today to get involved!
