Pediatric Liver Transplant Program

Changing Kids' Lives

In order to make lifesaving liver transplants available throughout central and north Florida, AdventHealth for Children, formerly Florida Hospital for Children, has created a partnership with UPMC Children's Hospital Pittsburgh to develop a world-class, comprehensive pediatric liver transplant program. The first of its kind in Orlando, the program accepted its first patient in May 2018.
