Taylorville Memorial Hospital To Hold Flag-Raising Ceremony For Organ Donation

Taylorville Memorial Hospital is set to host a flag-raising ceremony on Tuesday, April 30, shining a spotlight on the critical need for organ and tissue donation. Scheduled for 9:00 a.m. at the hospital's main entrance flagpole, the event aims to raise awareness about the nearly 5,000 Illinois residents currently awaiting life-saving organ transplants, as reported by the Gift of Hope Organ and Tissue Donor Network, serving Illinois and Northwest Indiana.


Recognizing April as National Donate Life Month, Eli Heicher, Chief Nursing Officer at TMH is honoring organ and tissue donors who selflessly provide the gift of life to others. The ceremony will not only serve as a tribute but will also feature addresses from officials representing Memorial Health, Saving Sight, and Gift of Hope.


The public is encouraged to participate in this meaningful event, with hospital staff on hand in the lobby to facilitate new donor registrations. Similar ceremonies are also slated to take place at the other four Memorial Health hospitals across Central Illinois.
