Description

More than 4,000 people die each year waiting for an organ transplant. Last year there were 50, 000 people on the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) waiting list. In Orlando they wait for livers at 2 primary centers in Florida, The Shands Hospital in Gainseville, and Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami. An analysis of UNOS data reveals that if you are waiting for a liver, this may well be the worst place to be.
