It's All About Giving
“Our doctors believe in the power of philanthropy so much that they are donors to CPMC themselves,” adds Osorio. “It’s fundamental to our work. Transplant medicine relies on people willing to make a precious donation — their organs — to help others. In more than one way, this department is all about giving.”
— Robert W. Osorio, MD, FACS, Chair of CPMC’s Dept. Advanced Organ Therapies and Transplant
