Jackson Hospital Takes Part in Rose Parade Float

Hospital news | Friday, December 20, 2013

Montgomery, Ala. – Jackson Hospital will have a special place in the 2014 Donate Life Rose Parade Float, sponsored by the American Hospital Association, the Association of Organ Procurement Organizations and the Eye Bank Association of America.

Jackson Hospital CEO Joe Riley contributed a handwritten message to be placed with a rose on the “Light up the World”-themed float to show the hospital’s support of organ donation.

“Organ donation is critical to saving lives, and this float will give a large platform to demonstrate the significance of donation and the gift of life,” Riley said. “Jackson Hospital is pleased to be a part of this great effort among hospitals across the country.”

This year’s float will honor those who have received organs and both living and deceased donors.

“The support families receive from the hospital is vital to a successful donation program,” said Chris Meeks, executive director of the Alabama Organ Center. “The hospital caregiver’s dedication and commitment to patients and families makes the gift of life possible by enabling a family to feel comfortable with the decision to donate.”

Watched by 40 million U.S. television viewers, 800,000 parade spectators and viewers in 150 countries, the Rose Parade is “America’s New Year Celebration” – and an ideal venue to showcase how hospitals across the country make the life-saving and healing benefits of organ, eye and tissue donation.

Today, there are more than 120,000 men, women and children in the United States on the organ transplant waiting list. Of those, nearly 3,800 are on Alabama’s list. Unfortunately, eighteen will die each day because an organ does not become available in time. The need for donors is more critical than ever.
