ETMC recognized for high organ donation rate

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services presented awards in October to 392 of the nation's hospitals for their successes in increasing organ donation rates.  ETMC Tyler received this recognition for sustaining a donation rate of 75 percent or more from among eligible donors for at least a year.  In 2006, over 31,000 organs were transplanted nationwide with 78 percent of those coming from deceased donors.
