Pittsburgh hospital to offer lung transplants
Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh has announced that it plans to open a lung transplant program. The hospital performed lung transplants from 1992 through 1995, but the program was discontinued due to an organ allocation policy at the time that was based on a patient's time on the waiting list. Hospital officials said the policy favored larger transplant centers.
