Celebrating 55 Years Since Our First Transplant in 1966

Penn knows the gift of life is not only about the person whose life is saved but also the community that surrounds them. We are honored to have been part of this momentous gift of life for more than 12,000 individuals who have trusted us with their care, and the families and friends who support them.

Transplant 55 year badge Our physicians, nurses, counselors and surgeons work with patients and their families to determine eligibility for transplantation and follow them through post-op care to ensure the transplanted organ is functioning properly. We have been a pioneer in organ transplantation for more than 50 years, and in that time our experienced team has performed more than 12,500 solid organ transplants.

The Penn Transplant Institute consistently meets or exceeds the national average in all organ transplants. These superior outcomes are a result of the combined efforts of multiple clinical departments across Penn Medicine and a unique, multidisciplinary approach to the treatment of end-stage organ disease.
