St. Joseph’s Health Saluted by The NJ Sharing Network

NJSN Silver Recognition Award 2015 01The NJ Sharing Network (NJSN) presented St. Joseph’s Health (SJH) with a Silver recognition plaque for its support of and efforts towards increasing awareness of organ donations. The award comes shortly after SJH was acknowledged by the New Jersey Department of Health and Human Services as a leader in organ donations for its organ, eye and tissue donation and registration efforts between June 2014 and May 2015.

According to the Organ Procurement Transplant Network (OPTN) and the NJSN, so far in 2015 St. Joseph’s has had fifteen organ donors resulting in thirty-six lives saved as well as more than 1,400 lives enhanced through tissue and eye donation alone. St. Joseph’s Health, which includes St. Joseph’s University Medical Center, an urban state designated trauma center, is one of the leading donation hospitals in New Jersey. Only less than one percent of deaths nationwide are actually medically suitable to become organ and tissue donors, making this a unique and rare opportunity.

“The NJ Sharing Network is proud to present St. Joseph’s with this Silver recognition for encouraging hospital staff and community members to enroll in their state registry as organ, eye and tissue donors,” said Joseph S. Roth, President and CEO, NJ Sharing Network.

Pictured are, l to r: Joseph S. Roth, President and CEO, NJ Sharing Network; Paula A. Gutierrez, MHA, Hospital Services Manager, NJ Sharing Network; Kevin J. Slavin, President and CEO, St. Joseph’s Health; Alan Sori, MD, Director, Surgical Quality and Surgical Intensive Care Unit, St. Joseph’s University Medical Center (SJUMC); and Karen Magarelli, RN, Director, Critical Care Services, SJUMC.
