Spotsylvania Regional Medical Center Earns WRTC Leslie Ebert Synergy for Life Award
March 21, 2012
Fredericksburg, VA, March 21, 2012 - The Washington Regional Transplant Community (WRTC) has awarded the WRTC Leslie Ebert Synergy for Life Award to Spotsylvania Regional Medical Center. The award is designed to celebrate the hard work of area hospitals who have supported organ, eye and tissue donation, but who do not have a high potential for organ donation. Hospitals who receive this award work to save lives every day, but are not eligible to receive a medal from Health and Human Services for high rates of organ donation.
Kenneth Boyd, Director of Hospital Services and Professional Education stated, "Hospitals like yours have committed advocates for donation-nurses, unit administrators, doctors and others who call in timely referrals, talk to colleagues about what it takes to save lives through donation, support tissue and cornea donation options for all families and who work professionally with WRTC staff on every recovery. Hospitals who are donation champions honor the wishes of those who have designated themselves as donors in a state registry, and have implemented or are working to implement a donation after circulatory death policy."
Leslie Ebert was a young WRTC coordinator who died unexpectedly just short of her 27th birthday. Her professional mission included supporting donor families and providing education to the hospitals with which she had contact. WRTC and her family honor her legacy by providing public and professional education awards highlighting the important, life-saving work of organ, eye and tissue donation.
