AHN McCandless Neighborhood Hospital is receiving statewide recognition for its efforts to support and raise awareness about organ, eye, and tissue donation.
AHN McCandless Neighborhood Hospital was honored with a platinum designation through The Hospital and Healthsystem Association of Pennsylvania’s (HAP) 2023 Donate Life Pennsylvania Hospital Challenge.
The annual campaign encourages Pennsylvania hospitals to increase organ, eye, and tissue donation awareness within their hospitals and communities. HAP partnered with the Pennsylvania Department of Health and the two organ procurement organizations serving Pennsylvania—the Center for Organ Recovery & Education and Gift of Life Donor Program—to support the challenge.
“Organ, eye, and tissue donors are critical to helping hospital teams save and improve lives,” said HAP President and CEO Nicole Stallings. “HAP applauds the outstanding work of Pennsylvania hospitals and our partners to support and raise awareness about donation. These efforts reflect hospital teams’ commitment to strengthening the health of their communities.”
AHN McCandless Neighborhood Hospital was one of 107 hospitals statewide that participated in this year’s challenge.
