Jackson Hospital receiving award for improving organ transplanation

Hospital news | Monday, January 17, 2011

Montgomery, AL – In November, the Department of Health and Human Services presented awards to 307 hospitals for their success in increasing the number of organs available for transplantation. Jackson Hospital was one of four Alabama hospitals to be recognized. All were recognized at the Sixth National Learning Congress for the Donation and Transplantation Community of Practice held in Grapevine, Texas.

An official ceremony will take place Thursday, January 20 at 2pm in the main lobby of Jackson Hospital. Hospital representatives will be presented a 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 the facilities.

“We are honored to recognize these public health stewards who offer such profound service to society,” said HHS Assistant Secretary for Health Howard K. Koh, M.D., M.P.H. "The awardees have demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to quality and leadership that leaves a special legacy."

"The Alabama Organ Center is proud of our hospitals' commitment to organ donation," states Dem Lalisan, Director, Alabama Organ Center. This year we are celebrating four Alabama hospitals who have worked to increase the number of organs available for transplantation and support donor families. These awards represent more lives saved by organ transplantation because donors and their families generously gave the gift of life."

HRSA has federal oversight of the nation’s organ donation and transplantation network. For more information, please visit www.organdonor.gov.
