“These recognition awards signify the profound commitment our organization has toward organ donation,” NAMC CEO Russell Pigg said. “Transplantation is a miracle that restores lives, and we are dedicated to helping share that miracle with patients and their families.”

NAMC partnered with Legacy of Hope to celebrate National Donate Life Month in April. The ceremony was to recognize that one organ, eye or tissue donor can save eight lives

In 2023, North Alabama Medical Center produced seven organ donor heroes and had 19 life-saving organs recovered from transplants. There were 20 bone and tissue donors, resulting in up to 2,000 recipients of an enhanced quality of life. NAMC also had 29 eye donors and 58 recipients of new sight.
