Organ Recovery Agency Taps Local East Bay Healthcare Executive

OAKLAND, Calif., March 12 /PRNewswire/ -- The California Transplant Donor Network (Transplant Network), selected Cynthia D. Siljestrom to lead one of the nation's largest non-profit organ recovery organizations. Ms. Siljestrom, who has been serving as CEO of East Bay Integrated Care and executive vice president of the Hospice Foundation of the East Bay in Pleasant Hill, Calif., begins her new position on April 14, 2008.

"After a national search, that took nearly a year, the search committee selected Ms. Siljestrom as the next CEO based upon her unique combination of skills, including her significant accomplishments in her prior management role," stated Morris Flaum, M.D., chairman of the board of directors of the Transplant Network. "Her unique set of qualifications, and her knowledge of the Bay Area, further enhance her ability to work well with our organization. We welcome Ms. Siljestrom with the knowledge that she will carry the organization into a new period of growth."

The Transplant Network is the link between organ donors in hospitals and patients waiting for transplants. In the past 12 months, the Network has saved hundreds of lives with 293 donors giving 1,061 organs, for a ratio of 3.62, one of the highest in the country. The organization's conversion rates, which indicate the ratio of consent among eligible donors, now exceed 70%, up from the previous two years.

A native of Connecticut, Ms. Siljestrom began her career as a laboratory scientist before becoming a laboratory manager at the Alta Bates Medical Center in Berkeley, Calif. She rose to executive director of oncology services there and as director of development in hospice services for the Alta Bates Medical Center Foundation. Those responsibilities provided the foundation for her work at East Bay Integrated Care and the Foundation, which employs 250 and 39 people, respectively. Ms. Siljestrom took
