Crozer-Keystone Health System and Gift of Life Donor Program recently celebrated National Donate Life Month with a presentation and reception at Crozer-Chester Medical Center. Gift of Life chose to visit Crozer-Keystone because of its commitment to promoting organ and tissue donations.

At the event, Gift of Life leaders thanked various departments across the health system that work with transplant patients and their family members. Last year alone, the generosity of families resulted in 21 life-saving transplants from nine organ donors within the health system.

Gift of Life also recognized the new Crozer-Keystone Regional Kidney Transplant Center at Crozer-Chester Medical Center. Led by John Daller, M.D., Ph.D., and approved by the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) and the PA Department of Health, the new Crozer-Keystone Regional Kidney Transplant Center is now accepting candidates for transplants and live donations.

Since 1974, the Gift of Life Donor Program has served as a link between donors and patients awaiting life-saving transplants in the eastern half of Pennsylvania, southern New Jersey and Delaware. The need for more organ donors is still urgent. Today, there are nearly 6,500 patients in this region awaiting the gift of a life-saving organ transplant. For more information on organ and tissue donation, call the Gift of Life at 1-800-DONORS-1 or visit its website, www.donors1.org
