Congratulations to our Quinte Health Care teams for earning a 100% Conversion Rate Award from Trillium Gift of Life Network. The conversion rate is the percentage of potential organ donors (patients who die in a hospital setting and are deemed medically suitable for donation) who went on to become actual donors.
"It all starts with a single phone call to Trillium Gift of Life Network," said Karen Johnson, Director of Hospital Programs, Trillium Gift of Life. "Without this call, the opportunity for donation would be lost. You are saving lives."
The 3 organ donors coming from QHC last year led to 14 transplants (which means 14 lives saved)!
“It takes compassion, teamwork and dedication to have 100% of potential organ donors go on to become actual organ donors,” said QHC President & CEO, Mary Clare Egberts. “The work that goes into this achievement is just another example of QHC staff and physicians living our values. I’m so very proud of the many QHC teams that are involved in this process."
