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.

Henrico Sheriff Mike Wade and Virginia Senator A. Donald McEachin (D-Henrico) have announced their intentions to seek the newly-redrawn 4th District seat in the U.S. Congress.
Wade will seek the Republican nomination and McEachin the Democratic nomination for the position, which is being vacated by Republican Randy Forbes, who will seek election in the 2nd District, which Republican Scott Rigell will vacate.
The 4th District was realigned by a three-judge panel in January, following a decision by the panel in 2012 that state legislators had included too many African-Americans in the 3rd District (which includes Eastern Henrico), thereby reducing their numbers in other nearby districts. It redrew both districts to address the issue. > Read more.
