Rick Davis, CEO of CPH: “We had a very great outcome, he was able to help several other people continue with their lives. There were five organs that were successfully transplanted in donors throughout the Northwest that saved lives of four different patients in the Pacific Northwest.” Over a year ago, the CPH staff collaborated with the Life Center Northwest organization to recover organs from a local donor Jeremy Alexander Dooley, from Soldotna. Davis accepted the award from the organization on November 10.last_img
