OMC receives Award from Saving Sight

Proclamation from the Missouri Senate Acknowledges Milestone

Ozarks Medical Center (OMC) was awarded the 2015 Excellence in Eye Donation Award from Saving Sight. Saving Sight is a non-profit organization whose mission is to change lives by saving sight. Saving Sight partners with 220 hospitals across central Illinois, Missouri, and Kansas and inaugurated the Excellence in Eye Donation Award in 2014.

OMC was one of just thirty-one hospitals in Saving Sight’s service region to receive the Excellence in Eye Donation Award for 2015. OMC earned this award based on the hospital’s forty-eight percent consent rate for eye donation and its facilitating thirteen eye donation cases that resulted in eighteen individuals receiving restored sight through a cornea transplant.

Missouri Senator Mike Cunningham presented a proclamation to the Missouri Senate recognizing this effort by OMC.
