CHI St. Joseph’s Health, Park Rapids, MN, earned recognition for efforts to increase organ, eye, and tissue donor registrations across the state. The Platinum-level recognition comes from the Workplace Partnership for Life (WPFL) Hospital Organ Donation Campaign. This national initiative unites the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services with the organ donation community and workplaces across the nation to spread the word about the importance of donation.

CHI St. Joseph’s Health participated in the campaign from October 2018 to April 2019. The campaign challenges health care organizations to “let life bloom” by educating staff, patients, visitors, and communities about the critical need for organ, eye, and tissue donation and offering opportunities for donor registration. CHI St. Joseph’s Health earned points for completing awareness and registry activities and prompting new donor registrations during the campaign period. CHI St. Joseph’s Health was among 1,480 participating organizations and was one of 638 organizations to earn Platinum recognition.
