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.
On the other hand, it has performed some 29 transplants, with 95 percent of renal functionality, the country’s best rate for the year.
This result in the patients’ care is due to the cohesion of the medical and paramedic staff, their training and devotion to scientific research.
But also the solidarity of donors from the provinces of Holguin, Las Tunas and Granma, whose donations contributes to save other lives.
