3 Lives Saved Through Successful Organ Donation

Greater El Monte Community Hospital is proud to announce that we recently completed a successful organ donation case that resulted in the lives of three individuals saved through transplantation.

On December 27th, the following organs were recovered:

  • The Liver was transplanted to a man in his mid-50s who was on the wait list for 102 days
  • The Left Kidney was transplanted to a man in his mid-50s who was on the waitlist for 2307 days
  • The Right Kidney was transplanted to a woman in her mid-50s who was on the waitlist for 2441 days

Thank you to the ICU, RT, and OR teams, Social Workers, Spiritual Support, and the team at One Legacy for their support and the amazing work that they do.

More than 118,000 Americans are currently waiting for an organ transplant. Please visit One Legacy's website to learn about how you can register as an organ donor. https://donatelifecalifornia.org/
