This event brought together more than 350 donation supporters at the Arizona Biltomore to celebrate 30 years of saving and healing lives in Arizona.
Eddie’s nomination was came from Brian Hilty, Donor Network of Arizona’s Hospital Development Coordinator. “Eddie is engaged/involved with every donor case at Carondelet St. Joseph’s and reaches out to me to see if he can help in any way,” says Hilty. “When the ICU manager resigned, he was able to ensure the process stayed in place so donation continued to occur in the ICU while a new manager was hired”.
