Five hundred West Virginians are awaiting a transplant.  Eight lives are the number of lives that one individual can save as an organ donor. Every year, CORE, Center for Organ Replacement and Education, recognizes hospitals for outstanding work to increase organ, eye, and tissue donor registrations.
WVU Medicine United Hospital Center (UHC) has earned platinum recognition for the West Virginia organ donor registration.
