HHS Medal of Honor Recipients

The Medal of Honor, established in 2005, is awarded annually by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) to hospitals who have exhibited exemplary leadership and commitment to organ donors, donor families and the nearly 100,000 patients on the national transplant waiting list.

 

To be eligible for the Medal of Honor, hospitals must have at least eight (8) eligible donors in a single, continuous 12-month to 24-month period and successfully collaborate with their Organ Procurement Organization to convert at least 75 percent of those eligible donors to actual donors.
