ZANESVILLE, OH (Nov. 10, 2016) Genesis HealthCare System is among a select group of hospitals nationwide to be recognized by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). For the fourth year in a row, Genesis earned top recognition for helping its employees and the community learn about the impact and importance of being an organ, eye and tissue donor.

“The Genesis Donation Council has awareness and registry events to educate staff, patients, visitors and community members about the critical need for organ, eye and tissue donors,” said Dan Vincent, consultant, Genesis Educations Services and Donation Council chairman.

The hospital earned points for each activity implemented between May 2015 and April 2016, and was awarded the platinum recognition through the HRSA Workplace Partnership for Life Hospital Campaign. The national campaign by HRSA has added about 400,000 donor enrollments to state registries nationwide since 2011.
