DETAILS: The Brian A. Broznick Pavilion enables CORE to provide improved care and support to donors, donor families and hospital partners throughout the donation process. The facility includes two fully functional operating rooms so that CORE can now recover organs and tissues on site rather than impacting the operating room or ICU schedules in local hospitals, which will increase efficiency. The Broznick Pavilion also has an expanded donor referral center. The 25,000-square-foot facility is named for CORE’s previous CEO, Brian A. Broznick, a committed leader whose guidance enabled CORE and its transplant hospitals to provide more than 300,000 patients with organ and tissue transplants. The new facility is a constant reminder of CORE’s dedication to serving the needs of donor families and improving the lives of transplant patients.
