In Photos: Sculpture Honors Legacy of Organ Donation


In honor of the Brigham’s legacy of leadership and innovation in organ transplantation, BWH was recently selected as one of five sites around the world to receive a candle monument commemorating organ donors and their families. Donated by Boston’s Sister City of Belfast, Ireland, the Irish limestone sculpture was recently installed in front of Stoneman Centennial Park. On Nov. 30, BWHers celebrated the gift and spoke about the importance of organ donation during a ceremony with representatives from the City of Boston, Belfast, New England Donor Services (NEDS), an organ donor’s family, a BWH lung transplant recipient and other community members.
