About the Donate Life Hospital Campaign
This national initiative, sponsored by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, challenges healthcare organizations to educate employees, patients, visitors, and the community about the crucial need for organ, eye, and tissue donation and give them opportunities to sign up as donors.
While the nation’s health care community faced unprecedented changes and challenges related to COVID-19, the 2021 Hospital Campaign saw encouraging participation numbers. 1,659 small and large hospitals worked with donation organizations to promote organ, eye, and tissue donation and prompted 27,389 people to sign up to be donors! In the 10 years of the Hospital Campaign, partners have added more than 575,000 donor registrations—increasing the number of organs available for transplantation to improve the lives of others.
The 2022 Hospital Campaign began October 1, 2021 – be a part of this important initiative!
