LifeNet Health Establishes 'The Skin & Wound Allograft Institute'

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va., Sept. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- LifeNet Health, a leading biomedical and allograft agency, announces the strategic creation of "The Skin & Wound Allograft Institute" in affiliation with The Living Legacy Foundation of Maryland, one of the nation's largest and most progressive organ and tissue recovery organizations in Baltimore, Maryland. The LifeNet Health -- "Skin & Wound Institute" will directly serve the needs of burn patients in the United States needing allograft skin as a mode of therapy in their recovery from one of the most devastating traumatic injuries -- burns.

LifeNet Health will provide the coordination of allograft skin recovery and distribution. The Living Legacy Foundation will provide processing services for donated allograft skin recovered specifically for burn treatment. This partnership will make LifeNet Health's allograft skin tissue products more readily available to surgeons across the country.

LifeNet Health CEO Rony Thomas stated, "For many years there has been a void in a comprehensive program dedicated to serving the needs of burn patients and the Institute will help meet the needs of these critically ill patients. We hope to grow the institute by adding quality recovery partners who want to ensure their local community has immediate and routine access to skin for burn patients. The state of the art processing services from The Living Legacy Foundation will complete this effort."

Charlie Alexander, CEO of the Living Legacy Foundation, states, "Living Legacy is excited to expand our tissue processing services on a national basis. We have historically had a strong dedication to burn victims and we are pleased to help this effort now on a national basis."

Founded in 1982 and headquartered in Virginia Beach, VA, LifeNet Health Inc., is a leading biomedical alloengineering organization and organ and tissue donation agency whose mission is saving lives and restoring health.
