Princeton Community Hospital receives $10,000 donation for Women’s Center Labor and Delivery area

Princeton, WV (WOAY) – Princeton Community Hospital has received a large donation to help welcome its tiniest patients into the world and heal other patients simultaneously. 

The TriForLife Birth Tissue Recovery Group granted the Princeton Community Hospital Foundation a $10,000 donation to fund upgrades for the Women’s Center Labor and Delivery area.  

WVU Medicine’s Princeton Community Hospital and TriForLife partnered in 2019 to offer placenta donations as an option for new mothers. 

TriForLife offers parents the opportunity to donate their baby’s birth tissue as a way of helping others.  

After a baby is born, the placenta, the umbilical cord, and the amniotic fluid are all helpful in various clinical applications, such as speeding up the healing process for those who suffer from debilitating wounds or prolonged surgical recovery.  

As many as 84 percent of new mothers at PCH’s Women’s Center choose to donate birth tissue each month.  

This year, PCH donors produced over 10,000 transplantable tissues.
