Remember to Fill Out Your Organ Donor Card
April 09, 2021
Patients at Palomar Medical Centers in Poway and Escondido saved the lives of 31 people last year by donating their organs, eyes and tissue through the organ registry program. To bring awareness to the opportunity to save lives, Palomar Health staff held a short ceremony recognizing National Donate Life Month and raised the Donate Life flag at both hospitals on Friday. Partnering with Lifesharing (the non-profit organization that coordinates organ donation in San Diego and Imperial Counties) staff educate eligible patients and their families during end-of-life scenarios on the opportunity to donate viable organs to those who are waiting for life-saving organ transplants nationwide. A single donor can save up to eight lives. You can add your name to the organ donation registry by visiting Lifesharing's website.
