A Record-breaking Month!
Thanks to all of you involved in the mission of organ donation, May was a record-breaking month for the number of organ donors served by the UW Health Organ Procurement Organization.
There were 20 donors in the month of May, making 59 organs available for transplant, and breaking the previous record of 19 from July 2004. This record-breaking month is a testament to the excellent work of the staff in donor hospitals, UW Health Organ Procurement Organization staff and everyone involved with the donation process.
Although this is a time to celebrate those who have given and received the gift of life, it is also a time to consider ways in which the UW Health Organ Procurement Organization can continue to strive for excellence. The UW Health Organ Procurement Organization team has a long history of success and is committed to continuing to serve organ donors and their families at the highest level.
Thank you to all who support the UW Health Organ Procurement Organization and a special thank you to all the volunteers, hospital staff members, transplant recipients and most especially the donors and their families. Together, we continue this important life-saving mission.
