Center for Organ Recovery & Education (CORE) Honors Allegheny General Hospital with National Award

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2011

The Center for Organ Recovery & Education (CORE), a federally designated not-for-profit organ procurement organization (OPO) serving Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and parts of New York, is pleased to present Allegheny General Hospital with the Department of Health and Human Services: Organ Donation Medal of Honor. This prestigious national award will be given to the hospital by CORE during a Medal of Honor presentation at the Magovern Conference Center at Allegheny General Hospital on March 1, 2011. 

“Without the support and collaboration of hospitals like Allegheny General, it would not be possible for CORE to meet the needs of those awaiting a life-changing organ, eye or tissue donation,” said Susan Stuart, president and CEO of CORE. “The Organ Donation Medal of Honor recognizes hospital partners who are committed to working with organ procurement organizations like CORE to achieve national donation goals.”


Allegheny General Hospital is one of 307 hospitals nationally to receive this award. It represents an outstanding commitment to saving lives through donation and transplantation by achieving national donation goals. The award was established by the Health Resources Services Administration (HRSA), an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, in 2005.

Allegheny General Hospital has received this award four times since 2007 as a result of its significant commitment to organ donation and transplantation.
