Transplant Coordinators & Team

Trained, experienced nurses, transplant coordinators serve a crucial role in your transplant experience. Their dedication to your health and well-being lasts for the entire process of your transplant.

What Does a Transplant Coordinator Do?

Transplant coordinators serve as the main point of contact for every patient in the transplant program. You have a coordinator for each phase of the transplant experience: one before transplant, one with you in the hospital during your transplant, and one who supports you afterwards on an ongoing basis.

Transplant coordinators help you:

  • Make appointments
  • Learn about your condition
  • Gather and complete paperwork
  • Deal with finances
  • Prepare for tests
  • Understand test results
  • Monitor your medications

Personal Access and Attention

Our transplant coordinators are available 24/7.

Whatever your concerns, questions or needs, you can count on your coordinator to help you find the answers. They are there for you, every step of the way.

For Living Donors, Too

If someone is considering being a donor, they’ll get a different transplant coordinator from the recipient.

This prevents a conflict of interest, giving the donor an advocate in the process. The aim is to ensure that the organ donor is making a decision without pressure from others.
