Hays, Ks. (April 27, 2016) – Dr. Heather Klatt, Hospitalist at HaysMed, was recently honored by the Midwest Transplant Network (MTN) with the “You Are Key” recognition. This award highlights hospital staff that go above and beyond to provide excellent care to potential donors and their families. The MTN is a certified not for profit Organ Procurement Organization (OPO) that facilitates organ donation and education in Kansas and western Missouri.
During a recent donor case at HaysMed Dr. Klatt worked with the transplant team while they were on site during the day and made a return trip to the hospital and remained on site for several hours to support the transplant team so they could honor a patient’s wishes to be an organ donor. She went above and beyond and because of this dedication two people were saved through organ donation.
Dr. Klatt was presented an award during a ceremony at the hospital earlier this month. She assists the HaysMed Organ Tissue and Eye Donation Committee with making transplant arrangements.
Organ donation is a gift that provides hope and new life. If you are interested in more information on organ donation please contact the HaysMed Organ Tissue and Eye Donation Committee at 785-623-5503 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
