NEWPORT — North Country Hospital continues to participate in the donate life campaign to educate the community about the organ donation process and success stories of lives saved.
Organ, eye, and tissue donation offer hope to donor families, who in the midst of losing a loved one, see the chance to believe their loved ones’ gifts will help save others.
At the same time, those waiting to receive a lifesaving organ have the dream and the courage to hope that a donor will become available, to restore their health and change their lives.
They can now achieve their life’s goals, all thanks to their donors.
“Here at North Country, the house supervisor team continues to elevate this program with timely organ bank referrals, and this high level of commitment resulted in receiving the award at the platinum level for the second time,” Director of Patient Care Services, Heidi Hawkins said. “I am grateful for their dedication to this important program.”
Since 2004, the Donate Life Rose Parade® float has inspired people across the country and around the world to save and heal lives with the powerful message of organ, eye, and tissue donation.
The 2022 Rose Parade theme, Dream. Believe. Achieve., celebrates education’s ability to open doors, open minds, and change lives.
In preparation for the New Year’s Day Rose Bowl parade thousands of participants are sending their rose vial to California, to be a part of the float, Courage to Hope, and North Country Hospital will be a part of it.
As the world’s most visible campaign to inspire organ, eye, and tissue donation, the Donate Life Rose Parade® float inspires viewers to save and heal more than one million people in need of organ, eye, and tissue transplants each year.
