City Biz List Baltimore

LANHAM, Md. - Doctors Community Hospital received the Leslie Ebert Synergy for Life Award from Washington Regional Transplant Community (WRTC), a nonprofit agency that recovers organs and tissues for transplants and research. The award recognizes smaller hospitals that support organ, eye and tissue donation.

"We're honored to work with WRTC and receive the Leslie Ebert Award. Beyond our commitment to support organ donation, the honor recognizes our commitment to promote hope and healing for families who've lost loved ones," said Philip B. Down, president of Doctors Community Hospital.
