Why Choose the Transplant Center

Our Transplant Center manages some of the most complex pediatric cases, performing more than 100 transplants a year and exceeding national expected outcomes. We care for children of all ages, from  the smallest infants through young adults.

The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia's Liver, Kidney and Blood and Marrow Transplant Programs have been recognized as Centers of Excellence by OptumHealth. The entire Transplant Center was also named an Institute of Excellence by Aetna. Hospitals recognized in this way have met extensive quality and cost-effectiveness criteria, qualifying them as centers that are recommended to consumers by these payors.

An approved member of the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS), our Transplant Center works in collaboration with the local organ procurement organization, the Gift of Life Donor Program. Our center has also been fully accredited by the Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy (FACT) since 2000.
