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:
Liver was transplanted to a man in his mid-50s who was on the wait list for 102 days
Left Kidney was transplanted to a man in his mid-50s who was on the waitlist for 2307 days
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.
