More than 75 heart transplant recipients, their families and medical staff will reunite Tuesday (2/14) to celebrate the 20th anniversary of The Ohio State University Medical Center’s heart transplant program.

The Valentine’s Day Reunion will be held from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Richard M. Ross Hospital at The Ohio State University.

Reporters are invited to attend and interview some of the first patients to receive a new heart along with medical staff that developed and worked on the program.

The party is being held in the auditorium of the heart hospital, 452 W. 10th Ave. Parking for marked media vehicles is available in front of the hospital.
