All Proceeds benefit the Carolinas Transplant Center Fund
Net proceeds benefit The Carolinas Transplant Center Fund, helping patients with expenses related to transplantation, such as post-transplant medication needs, travel, and lodging expenses associated with their care. The Fund also supports all adult, solid-organ transplant recipient programs at Carolinas Medical Center (kidney, pancreatic, liver, and heart transplants).
About The Transplant Center
The Transplant Center at Carolinas Medical Center is one of the busiest transplant centers in North Carolina, performing nearly 200 organ transplants every year. It’s one of just six in the US with its own hospital-based organ procurement program, which has resulted in shorter average wait times for organs for our patients.
Our organ-specific teams of surgeons provide transplant surgery and treatment for patients with end-stage kidney, pancreas, liver and heart disease.
The transplant center is certified by Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and is a member of the United Network for Organ Sharing in kidney, pancreas, liver and heart for adults and kidney, liver and heart for children.
