300th Lung Transplant Celebration


Jewish Hospital

Thank you to all who joined us in celebrating Jewish Hospital Trager Transplant Center's 300th lung transplant on Sept. 27.

Physician speakers included: Dr. Chris Jones, Transplant Service Line Program Director at Jewish Hospital; Dr. Victor van Berkel, Surgical Director, Lung Transplant who performed the 300th procedure, Dr. Allan Ramirez, Medical Director, Lung Transplant. Drs. Jones, van Berkel, and Ramirez are physicians with ULP.

There were also four past lung transplant recipients that joined us for the celebration including Dr. Jill Jacobs who shared how much her life has improved after receiving a lung transplant at Jewish Hospital. Dr. Jacobs is now working on her bucket list including her recent visit to the Grand Canyon with her daughter -- only possible because of her lung transplant. Guests enjoyed refreshments after the speakers to commemorate this momentous occasion.
