Donate Life flag at Essentia Health-St. Joseph’s Medical Center - photo submitted

Essentia Health honors organ donation families

Web posted April 9, 2019
Essentia Health in partnership with LifeSource, the region’s organ donation organization, raised a flag to honor donors and recipients on Monday, April 1 at the main entrance of Essentia Health-St. Joseph’s Medical Center. The flag will be flown the month of April to bring awareness to National Donate Life month.

“The Donate Life flag serves as a symbol not only to promote donation but also as a memorial to those who selflessly made the decision to become organ, eye and tissue donors,” says Susan Gunderson, CEO of LifeSource.

Since 2013, 14 tissue donors from Essentia Health-St. Joseph’s Medical Center have provided over 1,050  life-saving and life-enhancing tissue grafts to many grateful recipients, restoring new health and life for them and their families.

If you support organ donation, experts say the best thing to do is document your decision and tell your family of your decision by completing an Advanced Care Directive. You can also register to be a donor when you apply for or renew your driver’s license or state ID, or by visiting www.DonateLifeMN.org.
