Patients are referred to The Transplant Center from all over the western United States.
We offer a skilled team of transplant surgeons and a team dedicated to providing the best care available to transplant patients.
We pledge to help patients and their families before, during and after the transplant. This includes the highest standards of hospital and outpatient medical care, combined with a comprehensive network of support led by our transplant nursing coordinators and social workers.
An organ transplant is a positive, life-changing event for patients who have suffered from organ failure. It is also an emotional time for both the patient and family and requires a firm commitment by the patient to fully participate in the transplant's success. It involves patience, hard work and understanding.
- Kidney Transplant – In 1969, Arizona's first organ transplant, a kidney transplant, was performed at Banner Good Samaritan. Having now performed more than 3,200 kidney transplants, we are one of the largest providers of kidney transplants in Arizona.
In 2007, The Transplant Center participated in the state’s first paired exchange kidney living donor program.
- Liver Transplant – The state's first liver transplant was performed at Banner Good Samaritan in 1983. Liver transplant is offered to adults with irreversible liver failure not responsive to other medical or surgical management.
