Because we watch patients fight for their lives every day as they wait for organ transplants, The Jewish Hospital Transplant Center is actively involved with efforts to increase organ donation. Although you may never need a transplant, you may have the power to give someone the most priceless gift possible, the gift of life through donation. With a simple signature on a donation card, you can choose to save the life of someone needing an organ donation and encourage friends and family to honor your wishes and do the same.
Unfortunately, due to the lack of donated organs, many people never receive lifesaving transplants. That’s why The Transplant Center encourages live donation when appropriate and places a priority on public education, helping young people and families understand that donating organs saves lives.
