Hospital employees are encouraging people to register as organ and tissue donors during “Donate Life Month.”
While extensive surgeries do not usually occur at Fairmont Regional Medical Center, the director of Surgical Services said they are still in need of donors.
The Center for Organ Recovery and Education does harvest organs at FRMC to take to those in need.
“You can always contact someone here at the hospital to help you get that in place so that when it comes that time, then it’s easier on the family to maybe not have to make that decision,” said Cherie Moore, FRMC director of Surgical Services.
