For patients, an organ transplant is a tremendously emotional experience. They need skilled surgeons, but they need something more. They need physicians who are trained in the art of caring as well as medicine.
At St.Vincent, the goal of every transplantation is simple-getting the patient back to living a healthy, normal life as quickly as possible. Accomplishing that goal requires a multidisciplinary transplant team committed to post-operative care, which includes therapy, counseling, dietary, pharmacy, financial services, infectious disease, and other services designed to ensure a smooth and speedy recovery.
St.Vincent transplant services provide compassionate transplant care to all patients. Our goal is to meet the unique medical and mental needs of every individual under our care. Our purpose is to extend and improve lives. We heal not only patients' organs, but also their bodies, minds, and spirits.
