Celebrating Our 500th Heart Transplant

On November 23, 2012, the University of Ottawa Heart Institute performed its 500th heart transplant, less than 24 hours after numbers 498 and 499. Each heart transplant is a life-changing gift for the recipient and a moment for celebration in itself. Join us as we celebrate this major milestone.
