Grand View Health has received statewide recognition for its efforts to support and raise awareness about organ, eye and tissue donation.
The hospital received platinum designation through The Hospital and Healthsystem Association of Pennsylvania’s (HAP) 2022 Donate Life PA Hospital Challenge.
The annual campaign, which took place in April during Organ Donor Awareness Month, encourages Pennsylvania hospitals to increase organ, eye and tissue donation awareness and designations with their hospitals and communities.
Jillian Laudenslager, director of surgical services at Grand View Health, led the hospital’s PA Donate Life Challenge efforts, which included organ donation signup and recruitment events inside Grand View Health and promotional activities aimed at increasing the number of organ donors in Bucks and Montgomery counties.
Grand View Health employees wore green and blue to raise organ donation awareness on National Blue and Green Day April 22, and a team of Grand View Health colleagues showed further support by competing in the 25th annual Gift of Life Donor Dash in Philadelphia.
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.
Grand View Health is a member of the Penn Cancer Network, an affiliate of Penn Medicine Orthopaedic Surgery, and an affiliate of the Penn Trauma Network, part of Penn Medicine. Grand View Health has also partnered with Penn Medicine to provide advanced neurological services, including telestroke and teleneurology care.
Grand View Hospital is also part of the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) care network. This partnership provides families with access to CHOP pediatricians in Grand View Hospital’s emergency department, pediatrics unit and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU.)
Grand View Health operates six outpatient centers and two urgent care centers throughout Bucks and Montgomery counties.
