The Hospital Campaign was launched in 2011 as a special effort of the national Workplace Partnership for Life (WPFL), an initiative of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA).
The HRSA WPFL Hospital Campaign is now in its sixth phase and hospitals and transplant centers around the country are working to promote organ, eye and tissue donation by conducting awareness and registry events in their hospitals and communities. They are supported by their OPOs, including Donor Network West, Lifesharing, OneLegacy and Sierra Donor Services in California; Donate Life America state teams, including Donate Life California; and hospital associations, including the American Hospital Association (AHA) and the California Hospital Association (CHA).
Campaign participants have the opportunity to earn bronze, silver, gold or platinum level recognition from HRSA and the Campaign’s national partners. Hospitals and transplant centers earn points toward recognition for each activity completed between May 1 and April 30.
104 California hospitals were recognized for their efforts in Phase V of the campaign – which took place May 1, 2015 to April 30, 2016 – to cultivate a hospital culture that incorporates educating and registering potential donors.
For the fourth year, Donate Life California continues to participate in this important initiative. As a member of the WPFL leadership team, Donate Life California looks forward to providing support and ideas for organizing donor registry enrollment events and education opportunities with its OPO and hospital partners.
