Patient Care Evaluation
Each patient referred to our program undergoes a thorough medical assessment to determine suitability as a transplantation candidate. Patients are also screened for anticipated compliance, support system availability, emotional stability and financial coverage for the transplant and post-transplantation care. The Liver Transplant Team is available 24-hours, seven-days-a-week for issues regarding patient care.
The Transplant Coordinators provide continuity of care of the patients beginning with the referral for transplant, transplant hospitalization and transplant follow-up. Transplant Social Workers and the Transplant Financial Counselor assist the patient and their family with housing, insurance verification and other psychosocial concerns.
Additional services provided by our team include:
- Kidney-Pancreas transplants for those with kidney disease and Type I diabetes
- On-going clinical trials
- Patient education, including nutrition and support groups
