(Snellville, GA) (April 28, 2017) – Eastside Medical Center held a private Donate Life flag-raising ceremony on Monday, April 24th at their main hospital location.
The Donate Life flag is a symbol of unity and hope, and honors and celebrates the hundreds of thousands of donors and recipients whose lives have been affected by organ, eye and tissue donation.
“Organ and tissue donation can save and improve lives in our community, across Georgia and across the nation, and Eastside Medical Center wants to help drive that point home with this symbolic flag,” said Eastside Medical Center’s Intensive Care Unit Nurse Leader, Kathy Brown, “Joining the Donor Registry gives hope to those in need of organ and tissue transplants, while leaving a legacy of generosity for the donor and his or her family.”

Throughout the month, numerous hospitals and municipalities across the country have held flag-raising ceremonies in conjunction with Donate Life America’s national Flags across America celebration which began in 2009. The initiative rallies every donor hospital and transplant center, as well as all recovery agencies, to collectively fly the Donate Life flag during April. Eastside Medical Center is proud to participate in this initiative.
