Davis Medical Center earns West Virginia Governor’s Award for Life 2021

ELKINS — Davis Medical Center has received the West Virginia Governor’s Award for Life 2021. The award recognizes hospitals that have been successful in supporting organ, tissue, and cornea donation within their health care facilities, and have achieved increased donation rates as a result.

CORE partners with more than 150 hospitals and health care facilities deliver the gift of life by coordinating the surgical recovery of organs, tissues, and corneas for transplantation. The Center for Organ Recovery & Education (CORE) is dedicated to assisting researchers in academic medical centers, universities, biotechnology centers, and hospitals to advance the field of medical research through organ, tissue, and eye donation. Progress in treating common and rare diseases often hinges on access to both normal and diseased human tissues.

Over 100,000 people across the nation are waiting for a life-saving transplant. One person can save the lives of as many as eight people through organ donation and heal the lives of as many as 75 people through tissue donation.

Davis Medical Center is honored to be recognized by the Center for Organ Recovery and Education (CORE), promoting organ donation takes a community effort, and we are excited to share information on a lifesaving opportunity for some patients, says Julie Phillips, System Director of Quality and Risk Management.

Davis Medical Center received the award for meeting specific measures in supporting organ, tissue, and cornea donation within their health care facilities, and has achieved increased donation rates as a result.
