Dedicated Uniquely for You
Organ transplantation is a journey. We’re here to help make it a well-guided one. At the AdventHealth Transplant Institute, one of the nation's top organ transplant programs, we serve patients from around the country. Our renowned surgeons have performed more than 4,000 kidney transplants. We also specialize in liver, lung, heart, pancreas, and living-kidney-donor transplants. Our patients spend less time waiting and more time living their fullest life, with shorter-than-average wait-list times and survival rates among the top in the nation.
As part of the AdventHealth network, our world-class organ transplant program goes beyond cutting-edge technology and best-in-class facilities. We know the challenges ahead are more than physical and that the weight of waiting can make it hard to keep hope alive. That’s why before, during, and after your transplant, your dedicated team of experienced physicians, social workers, pharmacists, and more is here to keep your body strong, your mind at ease, and your spirits lifted.
At Every Turn
- Dedicated Transplant Unit for Recovery
Our one-of-a-kind dedicated transplant unit at the AdventHealth Transplant Institute is uniquely designed to guide your recovery minute by minute. It’s a specialized unit led by a staff that treats post-transplant patients day in and day out. Our goal is to help guide patients, caregivers, and families through the recovery process, empowering you with the information, tools, and resources you need to care for your new organ immediately after surgery and throughout your life’s journey.
- Transplant Support Groups for Life
You're never in this alone. Whether you're on the waiting list or recovering from transplant surgery, the support you need is always just a call, click, or short drive away. Transplant support groups, whether in person or online, can help you connect with others who know exactly what you're going through and how you're feeling. Share your challenges. Speak your fears out loud. And celebrate every victory, big and small. Our transplant team at the AdventHealth Transplant Institute hosts regular support-group meetings for pre- and post-transplant outpatients. We also offer support and spiritual counseling for caregivers. Our goal is to get patients and their families back to feeling whole.
- The Bartch Transplant House for Out-of-Town Patients
When you're not feeling your best, there's only one place you want to be: home. That's why we built the Bartch Transplant House, a private home away from home that offers affordable housing for patients who are traveling more than 35 miles to central Florida for a solid-organ transplant or a Ventricular Assist Device (VAD implant). And because the only thing you should worry about is getting better, we've thought of everything so you don't have to, from laundry service and a fitness space, to a full kitchen and concierge services.
Built Just for Them
Extra special patients deserve extra special care. Our pediatric transplant surgeons work closely with our network of pediatric specialists to ease your mind, calm your nerves, and deliver the best care possible for your child. Kids are dreamers. We want to give them back their dreams. We also don't want them to grow up too fast. That's why we try to lighten the heavy reality of their transplant experience while providing expert care and support for families.
