POINT PLEASANT — Pleasant Valley Hospital recently earned platinum recognition in the 2016 Donate Life West Virginia Hospital Challenge.
Donate Life West Virginia recognized PVH and 28 other hospitals and health systems throughout the state which have gone above and beyond to build a culture of donation within their facility. The awards luncheon was held in December 2016 at Stonewall Resort.
“The work and cooperation between the West Virginia Hospital Association and Donate Life West Virginia is an irreplaceable link to the gift of life for so many throughout this region,” said Susan Stuart, president and CEO, Center for Organ Recovery & Education. “The healthcare community is an indispensable key in connecting transplant patients with the donations they so desperately need.”
Now in its third year, the West Virginia Hospital Challenge is a collaboration between the West Virginia Hospital Association (WVHA) and Donate Life West Virginia (DLWV). The campaign focuses on hospitals within the state and encourages them to bring awareness to the importance of organ, tissue and cornea donation.
“We are very pleased that Pleasant Valley Hospital earned the highest recognition of platinum. I truly appreciate all the work our Pleasant Valley Hospital employees, volunteers, and community members do to bring awareness to donation,” stated Pleasant Valley Hospital CEO Glen Washington, FACHE.
