Dr. Victor Miranda
Organ Donor
Age 52


After a lifetime spent as an emergency room physician and medical entrepreneur, Dr. Victor Miranda died as he had lived,..saving lives.

 

On December 11, 2008, at the age of 52, Victor suffered cardiac arrest as a result of an undetected congenital heart defect. His family was devastated at the tragic loss, but even in their grief knew that Victors lifelong dedication to treating the most critically ill patients could be continued in his last moments on earth through Life Gifts organ donation program. Because of Victors relative youth and overall good health from years of golfing and daily fitness routines, several organs were shipped 4 critically ill patients all over the Houston, Texas. Many other patients benefited from other gifts of tissue, skin and bone as well.  All of the patients who were the beneficiaries of his life gifts are doing well today.

 

Victor was born in 1956 in Lima, Peru and excelled in all aspects of his life, both personally and professionally.  After moving to Texas as a boy, Victor earned an undergraduate degree from Texas A&M University and then graduated from the University of Texas Medical Branch. He became a general surgical resident at John Sealy Hospital in Galveston, Texas, but quickly learned that his real passion was caring for patients in urgent need of medical care.  Victor worked as a board-certified emergency room physician throughout his career and then went on to found several successful companies in the medical field, including Stat Healthcare, which merged with AmHealth and American Medical Response in 1995. At the time of his death, Victor was the co-founder and CEO of EHC, an emergency and diagnostic center in Houston, which was the fulfillment of a lifetime dream. 

Donating my Dads organs meant more to me than I ever could have imagined. Its comforting to know that he saved lives his entire life as an Emergency Room Doctor and continued to save lives even after his death. I know he wouldnt have wanted it any other way, commented Victors daughter, Ashley Miranda.

 

Through Life Gift, Victors legacy will continue not only through his 3 children and their children, but also through the patients who received the greatest gift of all.a second chance at life.
