04-15-2019

On Tuesday, April 16, at 1:00 p.m., LifeLink of Georgia will recognize Southern Regional Medical Center with the Workplace Partnership for Life Platinum Award for the hospital’s commitment to saving lives through donation. Workplace Partnership for Life awards are presented at the bronze, silver, gold, and platinum levels.

“We are honored and humbled to be a recipient of the highest-level award in LifeLink of Georgia’s HRSA Hospital Workplace Partnership For Life program.” states Alene Lewis, Southern Regional’s Chief Nursing Officer. “Southern Regional supports the critical need that our participation in the HRSA program brings to our community and beyond and will continue to support LifeLink of Georgia’s efforts to save lives.”

Hospitals who have joined this life-saving initiative have assisted in collecting 443,427 donor registrations since 2011. During the campaign, more than 1,200 hospitals worked with donation organizations, like LifeLink of Georgia, to promote organ, eye, and tissue donation in their hospitals and communities and received recognition from Hospital Donation Campaign Recognition Program Division of Transplantation.

One person can donate up to 8 lifesaving organs. Generating awareness of the need for registered organ donors is important but giving people the opportunity to register as donors is essential. Through registration, people gain the potential to save lives as donors.

LifeLink of Georgia is an independent, non-profit organ and tissue recovery organization dedicated to serving patients in need of transplant therapy and their families. This organization is one of five divisions of LifeLink Foundation, located in Tampa, Florida.
