Lifebanc Staff Honors Doctors of Distinction

In honor of Doctor's Day, Lifebanc staff recognized some physicians who go the extra mile. The Kidney Health Group is proud to announce that our very own Dr. Schwarze was recognized for Doctor’s Day by Lifebanc. 

An excerpt from a release written by Lifebanc:

Dr. Karl Schwarze - Akron General Medical Center - Returned to the hospital in the middle of the night to assist during the organ donation process.  He displayed genuine compassion and concern for the donor family whom he only met that night.  He spoke directly to them and thanked them on behalf of all of those on the transplant waiting list. He spoke to them of their courage and generous spirit that led them to donation. He was, on that night, a true ambassador for all of us in the donation field.

Please join us in congratulating Dr Schwarze! You can read the full article, which has a list of all the recognized physicians, on Lifebanc's website.
