Lower Bucks Hospital Honored With Platinum Award for

Efforts Supporting Organ Donation

Hospital team supported education, awareness through statewide challenge

Bristol, PA (08/25/2022) –Lower Bucks Hospital is receiving statewide recognition for its efforts to support and raise awareness about organ, eye, and tissue donation.

The hospital was honored with a platinum designation through The Hospital and Healthsystem Association of Pennsylvania’s (HAP) 2022 Donate Life PA Hospital Challenge.

The annual campaign encourages Pennsylvania hospitals to increase organ, eye, and tissue donation awareness and designations within their hospitals and communities. HAP partnered with the Pennsylvania Department of Health and the two organ procurement organizations serving Pennsylvania—the Center for Organ Recovery & Education and Gift of Life Donor Program—to support the challenge.

“HAP recognizes the hospital teams dedicating their time, energy, resources, and passion to supporting organ donation—even as they continue to navigate the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and a workforce crisis,” HAP President and CEO Andy Carter said. “The hospital community is proud to join our partners in encouraging Pennsylvanians to consider organ donation. One donor can save up to eight lives and enhance up to 75 others.”

Lower Bucks Hospital was one of 109 hospitals statewide that participated in this year’s challenge.

A full list of hospital designations resulting from the challenge, and more information about the scoring process, can be found at HAP’s website.
