Marshfield Medical Center-Weston was honored by University of Wisconsin Organ and Tissue Donation for its commitment to saving and improving lives.
The hospital received an Excellence in Tissue Donation award for performance during 2021. The award showcases the dedication of hospital teams to achieve or exceed tissue donation consent rate goals. UW Organ and Tissue Donation sets a goal of at least 60% consent. Marshfield Medical Center-Weston’s tissue donation consent rate was 77%.
“Organ and tissue donations can be some of the most memorable moments in health care, since someone is literally giving another person the precious gift of life,” said Dr. Keshani Bhushan, vice president of medical affairs for the Wausau-Weston region. “I appreciate all of the hard work being done by our local care teams to coordinate tissue consent conversations.”
