During the 2019 Hospital Campaign for Organ Donation, Speare Memorial Hospital was recognized with a Bronze Award for efforts to increase awareness in the local community about organ, eye, and tissue donation.  Speare was one of nearly 1,500 hospitals and workplaces that worked closely with organ procurement organizations (OPOs), Donate Life America (DLA) state teams or state hospital associations.

The hard work of these 1,500 organizations generated more than 48,000 donor registrations between Oct. 1, 2018, and April 30, 2019.  Speare was one of 19 New Hampshire hospitals to be recognized at the November 2019 annual education program sponsored by New England Donor Services OPO in Windham, NH.
