Organ donation saves and heals lives. Hospitals play a delicate role as a bridge between donors and recipients.
LifeSource honored Northfield Hospital with an Excellence in Donation Award for facilitating organ and tissue donation every time the opportunity arose in 2017. By fostering a culture of donation, we can create something positive in the moment of loss when a loved one dies. One person can save and heal up to 75 lives through organ, eye and tissue donation.
Across the U.S., there are 115,000 people waiting for a lifesaving organ transplant – nearly 3,500 of them in the upper Midwest.
