The process of receiving the instruments deemed suitable was completed last Saturday.

The surgical team of the Hippocrates Hospital of Thessaloniki removed the kidneys and the transplant team of the Second Ophthalmology Clinic of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki at the Papageorgiou Hospital removed the corneas.

The Administration of the Hospital expresses its warmest thanks for the donation of organs and the greatness of soul of the donor’s family.

At the same time, he thanks the staff of both the Papageorgiou Hospital and the Hippocrates Hospital, who undertook and successfully completed the organ donation procedures, under the coordination of the local coordinator of the National Transplantation Organization.
