Henrico Doctors’ Hospital to participate in National Kidney Registry program


HCA Virginia’s Henrico Doctors’ Hospital’s Virginia Transplant Center recently was recognized as one of 12 hospitals across the country that has agreed to participate in the National Kidney Registry’s Advanced Donation Program.

The ADP is a paired exchange separated in time that allows a medically and psychosocially acceptable donor to donate their kidney before their intended recipient receives a kidney. Some ADP donors have donated only weeks before their intended recipient was transplanted and others may be donating now, while they are healthy enough to donate, to secure a future transplant for a loved one who may not yet need a transplant (or another transplant). > Read more.

UPDATE: JUNE 17, 10 A.M. – A longtime Henrico teacher and a Glen Allen dentist will compete in a special election this November for the right to serve the final year of a four-year term on the Henrico County School Board, after the interim representative failed to submit enough acceptable signatures to appear on the ballot.

Short Pump Elementary School intervention teacher Michelle “Micky” Ogburn and Glen Allen dentist Surya P. Dhakar are seeking to serve the final year of the Three Chopt District board seat that Diana Winston won in 2011 and from which she resigned last August. They will face each other in a Nov. 4 election.

The interim Three Chopt District board member, attorney Robert G. Boyle, Jr. (who was appointed by the board in October) fell four signatures short of qualifying for the ballot, when Henrico Registrar Mark Coakley's office disallowed 57 of the 178 signatures he included with his filing. > Read more.
