|BRASFIELD & GORRIE'S GOAL IS TO RAISE $10,000 BY DECEMBER 31, 2014.|
Brasfield & Gorrie has partnered with the Florida Hospital Transplant Institute on a vision that is soon becoming a reality. We need your help to make the Transplant House a reality at Florida Hospital Orlando.
Two key issues exist for transplant centers and their patients: the critical shortage of organs available for transplant and the huge financial burden associated with the procedure and its related hospital visits. Over one-third of Florida Hospital’s transplant patients must travel more than 50 miles for their surgery — some coming from as far as the Northeast and Puerto Rico. The Transplant House at Florida Hospital will be a “home away from home” for patients and their loved ones who are in the Central Florida area for solid organ transplants as well as recovery from a ventricular assist device implant. These patients need to stay for a minimum of three weeks after surgery to recuperate, often much longer, and can have more than 40 clinic visits in the first year post transplant.
The Transplant House on the Orlando campus will provide a caring environment and offer high-quality, affordable accommodations for patients and their family members. In addition to physical lodging, the House will offer compassion and hope to support the healing journey. This House will enable Florida Hospital to continue to provide quality care throughout the entire transplant process, allowing patients and their families to have the best opportunity for a successful long-term outcome.
YOU can have an impact on hundreds of patients and their families each year! Thanks for making a difference!
