Created in 2008, the Governor's Award for Life partnered with the state's four organ procurement organizations and the West Virginia Hospital Association to recognize facilities with donation programs that have excelled to save and enhance lives through organ, tissue and eye donation. The award was presented at the CEO Summit/ Governor's Award for Life Dinner at Stonewall Resort in November.
