JANESVILLE, Wisconsin— Mercyhealth Hospital and Trauma Center-Janesville recently earned Silver recognition for its efforts to increase organ, eye, and tissue donor registrations across the state, through the Workplace Partnership for Life (WPFL) Hospital Organ Donation Campaign. The WPFL is a national initiative that unites the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), and the organ donation community with workplaces across the nation in spreading the word about the importance of donation.
Between October 2018 and April 2019, Mercyhealth Hospital and Trauma Center–Janesville participated in HRSA’s WPFL Hospital Organ Donation Campaign. Mercyhealth earned points for completing awareness and registry activities and prompting many new donor registrations during the campaign period.
Mercyhealth was one of more than 1,480 organizations to participate in the 2019 campaign and one of 378 organizations to earn silver recognition.
Every 10 minutes, another person is added to the organ transplant list, reaffirming the critical and growing need for registered organ, eye, and tissue donors.
