This video is of local Fox News (KKFX) coverage at Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center, where there was a very special honor given by representatives of Donor Network West to Aaron Thorne for his leadership in expanding the opportunity for organ donation on the Central Coast. Thorne, who is the Director of five different departments at Sierra Vista, including Critical Care and Oncology, received the “Life Saver” award and was recognized for his role in making Sierra Vista the first hospital to have Donation after Cardiac Death (DCD) in San Luis Obispo County, which means that many more donations are possible on the Central Coast. Donor Network West oversees organ donations for Northern and Central California as well as Nevada.
