Collaborative, determined, and encouraging are just a few words to describe Kate Blair. Kate is an Occupational Therapist at UW Health and the successes she and her team have been able to achieve are in large part due to those key personality traits. Kate motivates her patients to reach new goals every day, earning their trust in the process. And her commitment to better preparing patients for discharge played a key role in implementing updated patient evaluation procedures for the inpatient therapy team. By doing so, Kate and her team have been able to assess each patients needs more quickly so they can develop a patient-centered treatment program restoring function that much faster, ultimately resulting in a more prepared and coordinated discharge. Thank you, Kate, for making such a positive difference. #EverydayRemarkable #TeamUWHealth #OccupationalTherapist #OT

When Rebeca Vaisberg de Lustgarten of Caraccas, Venezuela, became critically ill in 2015, she traveled thousands of miles to University Hospital to see transplant surgeon Luis Fernandez, MD. Dr. Fernandez told Rebeca her best chance at survival was to receive a liver transplant from a living donor. Because of the way organs are allocated, Rebeca would have had to wait about a year for a new liver and she needed one sooner than that. Both her husband, Natan, and brother, Favel, clamored for the opportunity to donate part of their liver to her, but her sister-in-law, Myrna, ultimately gave her the gift of life.

Dick DeGroots complicated cardiac history included several heart attacks, the installation of several defibrillators, an attempted cardiac bypass surgery, and the installation of a left ventricular assist device (LVAD), a mechanical pump that helps the heart distribute blood to the rest of the body. When he got on the wait list for a new heart, he didnt think he would receive one because he was too old. But in July 2013 he did, indeed, receive his gift of life. Since then, with the help of his transplant coordinator, Darcy Middleton, RN, BSN, Dick has become an active participant in his life again. The man who once had to take a break at his mailbox before coming back inside now enjoys time with his grandchildren. #giftoflife #hearttransplant
