Date:2/10/2009

Virginia Hospitals Help Set Unprecedented Numbers

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va., Feb. 10 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- According to year-end statistics, LifeNet Health was able to save the lives of 406 people and distribute 300,348 allograft bio-implants to patients in 2008.

LifeNet Health saw a 13% increase from 2007 to 2008 in the number of bio-implants supplied to hospitals and physicians. LifeNet Health provided 300,348 allograft bio-implants to hospitals in 2008. These bio-implants included heart valves, bone implants, ligaments and tendons. The gift of bone and connective tissues helps individuals with various orthopedic and neurosurgical conditions. These tissues are used in back, joint, and leg surgeries such as hip replacement, knee reconstruction, and spinal fusion. Donated heart valves are used to replace damaged ones and can mean the difference between life and death to the recipients, including many children. The gift of skin is used as an aid in the healing process for severe burn victims. Tissue transplants provide restored mobility and an enhanced life.

Through the work of LifeNet Health, an additional 103 lives were saved in 2008 compared to 2007. LifeNet Health coordinates with approximately 80 hospitals, including five organ transplant centers in its service area, to facilitate the donation process in Virginia. This goal of saving 406 lives could not have been achieved without the dedication of four of Virginia's top donor hospitals: Sentara Norfolk General Hospital, Virginia Commonwealth University Health System, Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital, and the University of Virginia Medical Center. These four hospitals saw a total of 72 organ donors. Hospital development efforts by LifeNet Health established efficient and effective systems to ensure that donors were referred from the hospitals and evaluated in a timely manner. These efforts resulted in 23,077 referrals into Life
