How one hospital continued performing organ transplants during COVID-19
from U.S. News & World Report
For an organ transplant recipient, a virus – any virus – can be a death sentence. But for someone who needs a transplant, waiting too long to receive a new organ can be just as deadly. The pandemic has made an already complex process even more challenging, but at Baylor St. Luke's Medical Center in Houston, staff have been fortunate. They have continued to perform heart, lung and liver transplants during the crisis at about the usual pre-pandemic rate – and in some instances, at even higher rates than previously seen.
