BELOIT, WI. (May 11, 2022) — BHS is pleased to announce Beloit Memorial Hospital has won the 2021 Excellence in Tissue Award.

On Monday, May 16, 2022, the UW Organ and Tissue Donation is coming to Beloit Memorial Hospital to celebrate. There will be an awards ceremony in the auditorium, 1969 W. Hart Rd. to present awards, deliver packaged snacks, and celebrate together.

The Excellence in Tissue Donation award is given to hospitals that achieve at least a 60 percent consent rate. This metric measures the collaborative work between the hospital staff and tissue bank in coordinating communication around tissue consent conversations.

“Just one tissue donor can enhance the lives of over 50 people. This enhancement is completed by assisting with restoring eyesight, enhancing mobility, and ultimately improving the quality of life of an individual. BHS is honored to receive this significant award recognizing the collaborative work around tissue donation. BHS is committed to continuing leadership in patient and community wellness through supporting tissue donation.” Sharon Cox, DNP, MSN, RN, Vice President/CNO
