Methodist Institute Reaches Transplant Milestone

September 30, 2009

Congratulations to the Methodist University Hospital Transplant Institute for reaching a milestone in transplantation! The Methodist Transplant Institute, along with the University of Tennessee Health Science Center, performed its 1,000th liver transplant Monday, September 28. Only 33 liver transplant programs in the U.S. have reached this milestone, out of a total of 126 liver programs in the country.

We greatly appreciate the work of the Methodist Transplant Institute and the University of Tennessee Health Science Center as they serve those awaiting lifesaving transplants in the Mid-South. With nearly 104,000 people waiting for transplants in the U.S., these surgeons are offering hope to so many people in need of a second chance at life.
