Importance of becoming a donor

In 2012, University Health System CEO Tim Brierty inspired 808 employees to register to become organ, tissue, and eye donors with the Glenda Dawson Donate Life Texas registry. This year, Mr. Brierty is part of a hospital-wide campaign to educate 80% of University Health System employees on the importance of becoming a donor.

Mr. Brierty understands that taking the initiative to register is not an easy decision and can involve a difficult conversation with family and loved ones but he is hopeful that someone, at sometime, will reap the benefits of his efforts to help spread awareness.

“God gives us many gifts on this earth to include our life. What greater gift to give another person but a gift of life when our life has ceased on this earth? We don’t take anything with us when we depart because all our needs will be taken care of; our souls remain whole and healthy for eternity.” ~ Tim Brierty
