Hackensack Meridian Health Jersey Shore University Medical Center and NJ Sharing Network honored 38 donors who gave the gift of life over the last two years in an emotional ceremony on Thursday, July 13. More than 300 family members and caregivers were in attendance to recognize the impact donors had on saving hundreds of lives through organ and tissue donations.

The names of all 38 donors were read aloud and a sunflower was presented to family members during “Zan’s Garden of Life” dedication ceremony at Jersey Shore University Medical Center. Zan’s Garden was created as a tribute to patients who were cared for at Jersey Shore University Medical Center and donated organs or tissue to save countless lives.

“The amazing 38 people we are honoring have helped save the lives of 47 people through organ donation, and they’ve enhanced the lives of hundreds of others through tissue donation,” said Kenneth N. Sable, M.D., president of Jersey Shore University Medical Center. “Zan’s Garden has become such an important part of Jersey Shore University Medical Center, both as a place to reflect on those who have given the gift of life, and as a reminder to all of us about the power of organ donation. This dedication event is also very important to our team members who are on the frontlines of medicine each and every day, interacting with patients and families at the most difficult times of their lives.” Continue reading
