We’re excited to share that Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital and Memorial Regional Hospital were each recently recognized with the Center of Excellence Gold Level ELSO Award for Excellence in Life Support from the Extracorporeal Life Support Organization. The distinguished award is presented to organizations that distinguish themselves by offering exceptional quality care in extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) and boast processes and procedures that promote excellence.
As Chief of Staff of JDCH and Medical Director of the hospital’s Extracorporeal Life Support program, PCCSF’s Dr. Gerald Lavandosky manages JDCH’s ECMO program. He, along with JDCH’s staff, are committed to providing pediatric patients exceptional and advanced life-saving medical care.
“The extracorporeal life support program at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital has been a designated Center of Excellence by the Extracorporeal Life Support Organization since 2016. This year, once again, receiving the Gold Level award recognizes our center’s continued commitment to patient safety and superior outcomes for infants, children and adolescents requiring extracorporeal support,” said Dr. Lavandosky.
