  • Celebrations for #DonateLifeMonth have been taking place across #LifeBridgeHealth. Many employees from Sinai, Northwest and Carroll hospitals joined the #In1Word campaign, where they wrote one word on a poster to describe why they’re an organ or tissue donor. The posters were displayed at each facility to raise awareness.
