The University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC) has more than 50 years of experience in organ transplantation.
As an academic medical center, our team continually looks to find new ways to help patients. Each year, we bring life-saving transplants to more than 400 patients and their loved ones.
Entering the Transplant Program
To enter our transplant program and be placed on an organ waiting list requires a thorough evaluation of your medical history and an examination.
While most transplant candidates are referred to the program by a medical professional or social worker, they may also enter by calling us directly at 1-800-492-5538.
All transplants are performed at UMMC's downtown Baltimore campus; however, evaluations and follow-up care can be done at a number of locations in the Mid-Atlantic region. We offer eVisits for the initial evaluation for out-of-state patients.
When you begin your transplant evaluation, we will connect you with one of our transplant nurse coordinators who will:
- Help you understand what to expect of the transplant process
- Make all of your appointments
- Answer questions and be a consistent point of contact for you
Experts from various specialties will work closely together with you, your family and your home physician. At UMMC, we are passionate about providing personalized care that meets the needs of each individual and involves patients’ families and caregivers every step of the way.
