About UW Health Transplant Program
With more than 13,000 transplants and 50 years of success, the UW Health Transplant Program has created new drugs, discovered new techniques and implemented patient care protocols now used worldwide. We’re one of the nation’s largest comprehensive transplant centers serving adult and pediatric patients. UW Health Transplant consistently leads the nation in patient outcomes providing quality, compassionate care tailored to each patient. Our average wait times for transplant are typically much less than the regional and national average. We are a Center of Excellence for most insurance programs and an approved provider for UnitedHealthcare. Our dedicated team manages financial screenings for patients, including verification with their insurance plans. We are a Veteran’s Administration-approved liver, heart, and lung transplant center and an accredited Cystic Fibrosis Care Center.
We know that sometimes, it’s the little things that make the largest impact, so we do things like provide ongoing patient education (in-person and via webinar) through our Living Well Before and After Transplant learning sessions; support a home-away-from-home environment at The Restoring Hope Transplant House; provide a comfortable hotel environment at UW Health’s hotel, The InnTowner, and offer convenient mobile-home parking for patient families who prefer to stay in their own home-on-wheels. Our mission: directing the future of transplantation. Our focus: exceeding the needs of every patient.
