WellSpan Health is proud to announce its participation in the 2017 Hospital and Healthsystem Association of Pennsylvania (HAP) Donate Life Hospital Challenge, which encourages hospitals to raise awareness of the importance of organ, eye and tissue donations.

Nationally, more than 122,000 men, women, and children are waiting for a life-saving organ transplant – including more than 8,500 people just in Pennsylvania – while a single donor can save eight lives and positively impact hundreds more.

WellSpan was recently recognized for its commitment to organ, eye and tissue donations during last year’s challenge, with WellSpan York Hospital receiving the Platinum Award for its support of the campaign. In addition, WellSpan Ephrata Community Hospital, WellSpan Gettysburg Hospital, WellSpan Good Samaritan Hospital and WellSpan Surgery and Rehabilitation Hospital received Gold Awards.

And overall, WellSpan Health received the health system Platinum Award and was recognized with second place among the top performers in the southeastern Pennsylvania.

The Hospital and Healthsystem Association of Pennsylvania’s (HAP) Donate Life Hospital Challenge is in partnership with the Pennsylvania Department of Health, the Center for Organ Recovery & Education and Gift of Life Donor Program.
