and Healthsystem Association of Pennsylvania (HAP)—along with its partners, the
Center for Organ Recovery and Education (CORE) and the Gift of Life Donor
Program—are committed to support our hospital members in every way possible. Due to COVID-19, we understand that hospitals canceled scheduled events and an increasing number of health care teams have been deployed to address patient needs.
It is for
those reasons that we—with the support of CORE and the Gift of Life Donor
Program—have decided to suspend HAP’s Donate Life Hospital Challenge for
hospitals' commitment to this challenge and for their dedication to promote
organ, tissue and eye donation.
HAP would like
to honor those
hospitals and health systems who dedicated significant effort to drawing attention
to the need for organ and tissue donors and encouraging new donor registrations
during the beginning of the challenge.
The HAP Donate Life Pennsylvania Hospital Challenge encourages Pennsylvania hospitals to increase organ donation awareness and designations within their hospital and community.
The awareness and designation activities are captured on a scorecard for participating hospitals to achieve titanium, platinum, gold, silver, and bronze level point totals.
