Lions Eye Bank recognizes WellSpan Ephrata Community Hospital


Tuesday, July 08, 2014

WellSpan Ephrata Community HospitalThe Northeast Pennsylvania Lions Eye Bank recently recognized WellSpan Ephrata Community Hospital for its continuing support of organ donations, including corneas, the clear outer lens on the front part of the eye.

Since January 2013, WellSpan Ephrata Community Hospital’s continued partnership with the Northeast Pennsylvania Lions Eye Bank has resulted in restoring sight to 40 men, women and children.

Audrey McCarty, RN, director of maternal child services and nursing administration, WellSpan Ephrata Community Hospital, said the hospital works through the Gift of Life on all organ donations, including corneas. The Gift of Life contacts the Northeast Pennsylvania Lions Eye Bank, which actually harvests the corneas.

McCarty encourages WellSpan staff members to register as an organ and tissue donor. If you have already registered, encourage your colleagues and friends to do so.

For more information on organ and tissue donation, call the Gift of Life at 1-800-KIDNEY-1. To register as an organ and tissue donor, go to www.donors1.org
