HSHS Sacred Heart Hospital was recently among 17 hospitals in the state to be recognized by University of Wisconsin Organ and Tissue Donation for the hospital’s ongoing commitment to saving and improving lives through organ and tissue donation.

On May 8 in Wisconsin Dells, the hospital received the University of Wisconsin Organ and Tissue Donation’s Silver Award of Hope, which recognizes the comprehensive work of hospitals that achieve or exceed the goals of two important measures that maximize the gift of life: the true conversion rate, which measures the percent of medically eligible donors that become actual donors; and organs transplanted per donor, which measures the average number of organs recovered from each donor.

"The clinical management of donors, coupled with a hospital's compassionate support of donor families, is a critical component to saving lives through the gift of organ donation and transplantation," said Michael Anderson, executive director of University of Wisconsin Organ and Tissue Donation. "We honor these hospitals and their incredible clinical teams for working so hard to help ensure that those who are waiting for a transplant will get a second chance at life.”
