UCSF Medical Center is suspending its living-donor program for kidney transplants after a donor died.

A statement released by UCSF said it voluntarily suspended the program when a donor died in November. Other transplant programs are not impacted.

“The safety and well-being of our patients is our top priority, and every effort is being made to understand what happened. We are deeply saddened by this tragic event,” the hospital’s statement said.
