Celebrating the Gift of Life

 

Englewood Hospital and Medical Center received a nomination for an Award of Distinction from the NJ Sharing Network, a non-profit, federally-certified, state-approved organ procurement organization. The nomination recognized the Medical Center for achieving a 75% conversion (organ donor) rate and for exhibiting multi-disciplinary excellence in creating an optimal environment for organ donation and transplant.

In a recent visit to the Medical Center, representatives from the NJ Sharing Network, along with an organ donation recipient, presented a certificate to Englewood Hospital’s Critical Care team in appreciation of their ongoing support and dedication to organ donation.
