Baptist Health Medical Centers Honored for Organ Donation Efforts Across the State

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. –  Several Baptist Health Medical Centers were recently honored for their continued efforts in educating both staff and community members about the importance of organ, eye and tissue donation. The honors were presented by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) through its DoNation campaign.

Baptist Health Medical Center-Little Rock and Baptist Health Medical Center-North Little Rock were both honored with platinum designation, while Baptist Health Medical Center-Conway and Baptist Health-Fort Smith received gold. Baptist Health Medical Center-Drew County was honored with a silver award, while Baptist Health Medical Center-Stuttgart earned a bronze level. 

April is National Donate Life Month. One organ, eye and tissue donor can save and heal more than 75 lives. However, only 45% of Americans are registered organ donors, according to ARORA. Baptist Health facilities work throughout the year to educate staff and community members about organ donation and how to register to become an organ, eye and tissue donor.
