Often following a storm, the presence of a rainbow provides optimism and motivates us to endure through dark times. Similarly, organ, eye and tissue donation is the bridge of comfort and hope between one family’s mourning and another’s healing — turning tragedy into renewed life.
NHRMC is an organ donation center, but transplants are not performed here. When a patient at NHRMC donates their organs, a team from another hospital comes to remove the organs and ensure they are transported to a recipient's hospital.
The NHRMC Rainbow Art Contest is one way NHRMC is bringing awareness to the importance of organ donation. More than 33,000 organs were transplanted in 2016, but more than 116,000 potential recipients are still waiting for organs. Each piece of artwork below was created by a different department at NHRMC.
