Broward Health Medical Center and Neil Miransky, D.O. were recognized at the Miracles of Life Awards which took place on Friday, Nov. 30 and hosted by the University of Miami’s Life Alliance Organ Recovery Agency. The ceremony honored the work of individuals and partner hospitals saving lives through organ, eye and tissue donation.  
Broward Health Medical Center received the Silver Unit of the Year Award for its continuous support and dedication to the cause of organ, eye and tissue donation, as well as its successes with donation and transplantation. Because of Broward Health Medical Center’s Atrium Intensive Care Unit’s (AICU) advances with donation, in 2017 there were 23 organ donor heroes, with 76 organs transplanted and 64 lives saved through organ donation. The AICU at Broward Health was selected for this award from among 92 other hospitals in Life Alliance’s designated service area throughout South Florida.
“There is no greater privilege for Broward Health physicians, nurses and staff than to save lives through organ donation and transplants,” said acting Broward Health President/CEO Gino Santorio. “We are proud to be a leader in this area and thank Life Alliance for this recognition.”
Miransky, a family medicine physician on staff at Broward Health Medical Center, is the recipient of the Physician of the Year Award. He was selected from all donation supporters in South Florida due to his continuous support and unwavering dedication to organ, eye and tissue donation. The University of Miami’s Life Alliance Organ Recovery Agency said it was “sincerely grateful for his commitment to saving lives and he exemplifies the words Donation Champion.”
“Dr. Miransky is a tremendous advocate for organ donation at Broward Health Medical Center,” said Broward Health Medical Center CEO, Jon Turton. “His commitment to this program is second to none. We are honored to have Dr. Miransky as a member of our medical staff.”
Miransky is program director for the Barbara Zeigler Palliative Fellowship and chief of family medicine for Broward Health Medical Center. He is also the medical director of Broward Health’s hospice and provides medical leadership for Broward Health’s Advanced Certified Joint Commission Accredited Palliative Care Program.
