Transplant patient apartment

We have an apartment, located on the hospital's main campus, available exclusively for transplant patients and their family members. The apartment is for people who have traveled from out of town and prefer to stay overnight during pre-transplant testing or transplant surgery. All reservations must be made in advance, and the apartment is only for pre- or post-transplant patients and their families. Contact your transplant coordinator for more information or to make reservations.
