Lanham hospital recognized for organ donation program

Gazette | Virginia Terhune

Doctors Community Hospital in Lanham recently received the Leslie Ebert Synergy for Life Award from Washington Regional Transplant Community, a nonprofit agency based in Annandale, Va., that recovers organs and tissues for transplants and research.

WRTC is the area’s federally designated organ procurement organization. When a patient has died or death is imminent, hospitals are required to notify the organization, which works to recover any organs donated by the patient.
