Mesa View Regional Hospital has been recognized by the Nevada Donor Network as 2015’s ‘Most Collaborative Hospital’ in the state.
Nevada Donor Network is a federally designated 501(c)3 not-for-profit organ procurement organization (OPO) serving 15 counties in the state of Nevada. Founded in 1987, their mission is to maximize the gift of life and health through organ and tissue donation. One of only 58 OPOs in the US, they passionately serve more than 2 million people in the state of Nevada and thousands of potential transplant recipients across the country.
Their primary functions as an OPO are to coordinate, recover and allocate lifesaving organs and healing tissues for transplantation and research on behalf of heroic donors. They provide education to hospital staff and community partners on the referral and donation process and provide a strong network of support for the courageous donor families who save lives through the gift of donation. Nevada Donor Network is a member of Donate Life Nevada, a statewide collaboration of agencies committed to motivating Nevada residents to register as organ, eye and tissue donors.
“We are so pleased to be recognized in this way, and this is a testimony to the quality, collaborative staff that we have here at Mesa View,” commented Patty Holden, CEO for Mesa View.
