A designated hospital for the Trillium Gift of Life Network

Did you know CMH is a designated hospital for the Trillium Gift of Life Network?


At the beginning of March, CMH joined forces with the Trillium Gift of Life Network (TGLN) to become a designated hospital. A designated hospital is one that works with TGLN when someone is pronounced dead or is at high risk for imminent death. When this happens, many processes are put into place. For example, a TGLN coordinator connects with the family, while the hospital determines the patient’s suitability for organ donation. This collaborative effort provides our patients’ families with the support and information they need to make a difficult decision. From the medical side, CMH will follow a clear process so that it can offer the best possible outcomes for both the donor families and patients waiting for a transplant. In Ontario, 214 organ transplant surgeries were performed between October 2012 and January 2013. Yet despite this seemingly high number, 195 Ontarians died waiting for an organ in 2012.

 

Today, 1506 Ontarians are waiting to receive an organ from a donor, 26 of whom live in our catchment area.
