UnityPoint Trinity Muscatine Hospital Donate Life Flag Raising

April 6 @ 10:00 am - 10:30 am

UnityPoint Health–Trinity is proud to partner with the Gift of Hope Organ & Tissue Donor Network and the Iowa Donor Network to honor organ and tissue donors. Team members will raise a special organ and tissue donation flag during a ceremony at each hospital campus, accompanied by guest speakers.

This event will help honor organ and tissue donors as well as bring awareness about the importance of organ, tissue and eye donation. Every nine minutes, another person is added to the national organ transplant waiting list, and UnityPoint Health – Trinity helps connect patients and families with organ donation services.

There are 106,000 Americans on the national transplant waiting list, nearly 4,000 are in Illinois and more than 580 in Iowa. On average, 17 people die each day waiting for an organ transplant. Choosing to become an organ donor can make a big difference. One donor can save eight lives and enhance the lives of 75 others. NOTE TO MEDIA: Media is invited to the flag raising ceremony at the Trinity Rock Island campus.
