Gift of Hope and our partners have the opportunity to increase the number of organs and tissue available for the people of Illinois.
OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center, Rockford, submitted a request to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to leave their current organ procurement organization (OPO) service provider and begin working with Gift of Hope. By incorporating Gift of Hope’s successful processes and outreach network, Saint Anthony Medical Center believes it can increase organ donation rates, reduce wait time and help more patients.
To ensure Saint Anthony’s request is granted, we need YOUR help! Click here to send an email showing your support for more equitable treatment for Illinois patients and higher organ donation rates. Together we can help save the lives of the 4,700 people waiting for a lifesaving organ transplant in Illinois.
