HHS Recognizes Hospitals with Highest Organ Donation Rates

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) today presented awards to 428 of the nation’s hospitals for their success in increasing the number of organs available for transplantation.

 

Hospital executives, together with their partners in all 58 federally designated organ procurement organizations (OPOs), received the Department’s Medal of Honor for Organ Donation for achieving and sustaining national goals for donation, including a donation rate of 75 percent or more of eligible donors at their facilities. They were recognized at the Fifth National Learning Congress for the Donation and Transplantation Community of Practice held in Grapevine, Texas, from Sept. 30 to Oct. 1.

 

“These hospitals have made incredible progress in increasing the number of organs available for transplantation,” said Mary K. Wakefield, Ph.D., R.N., administrator of HHS’ Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), which leads federal efforts to increase organ and tissue donation. “Their efforts reflect the heights Americans can reach when they work together toward a common goal.”

 

Dr. Wakefield lauded the 30 hospitals that earned gold medals for reaching or exceeding all three of the goals of the Community of Practice: improving donation rates, increasing the number of organs donated per individual donor to 3.75 or higher, and expanding clinical processes for recovering organs.

 

"Today we honor the partners who have collectively demonstrated extraordinary acts of humanity," said U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Assistant Secretary for Health Howard K. Koh, M.D., M.P.H. "We are humbled to recognize these public health stewards who offer such profound service to society.”

 

Each of the 428 winning hospitals had eight or more eligible organ donors during the 22-month award period ending in April 2009. Dr. Koh presented the awards to these hospitals based on their performance in meeting or exceeding one or more of the three goals identified above.

 

HRSA’s Donation and Transplantation Community of Practice brings together donation and transplantation professionals and hospital leaders to identify and share best practices to integrate organ donation into hospitals’ end-of-life care. This year’s event recognizes the importance of including donor designation specialists in hospitals’ efforts to increase donation rates at their facilities. The commitment of the individuals and organizations comprising the Community of Practice has helped make possible the transplant of 3,088 more organs from deceased donors in 2008 than in 2003.
