Since the Lucia Iniguez Ladin clinical hospital started kidney transplant in 1996, it has performed some 374 operations of this kind, thus ranking first in the country.

The number of these complex operations during 2008 in that health centre represented 48 percent of the kidney transplants performed in Cuba, what tells by itself of the potentials in the specialty in the Cuban eastern province of Holguin.
