  1. Lillian Heintz says:

    I want to add my points to the UW Medical Center for the work that they do. I am a recent recipient of a lung transplant and cannot say enough for Dr. Michael Mulligan and his team for the efforts they put in to making the system work and their patients well. The hospital staff and nursing staff are stellar.
