St. Josephs Norton Thoracic Institute recently completed its 900th lung transplant. The lung transplant program, which launched in April 2007, cares for approximately 1,000 post-transplant patients and ranks fourth in the nation for overall lung transplant volume. In addition, the program is recognized by the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients (SRTR) as the only center within the top-five lung transplant volume hospitals (and in Arizona) to achieve the highest possible quality marks for lung transplants (measured as survival on the waitlist, getting a transplant faster, and 1-year lung survival). Congratulations to the lung transplant team and to the many individuals throughout the hospital who support the transplant program.
