Members of the Crozer-Keystone Regional Kidney Transplant Program were honored to kick-off Crozer-Keystone Health System's participation in Phase III of the Pennsylvania Donate Life Hospital Challenge on Wednesday. The challenge is an initiative of the Hospital and Health System Association of Pennsylvania (HAP) and the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA).

"I feel as though I have been lifted up," says Denise Robinson who received a kidney transplant from a deceased donor on Mar. 28. "My new kidney opens up so many opportunities that I didn’t have before my transplant. I feel blessed."

HAP has partnered with the Pennsylvania Department of Health, and the Center for Organ Recovery & Education and Gift of Life Donor Program—the two organ procurement organizations serving Pennsylvania, to support the 2015 Pennsylvania Donate Life Hospital Challenge.

The challenge focuses on increasing awareness of the critical need for organ donors as well as the clinical integrity of the donation process. CKHS is proudly participating in the third year of the initiative, which runs from Apr. 1 to Aug. 31.
