Swedish Organ Transplant Program Celebrates 40 Years of Kidney Transplantation, Receives Medicare Certification for Liver Services

Swedish News

SEATTLE — November 7, 2013 — Swedish Medical Center’s organ transplant program is celebrating two milestones this month – the 40th anniversary of its kidney transplant program and recent approval of its liver transplant program by Medicare.

Swedish is a longstanding leader in organ transplantation in the Pacific Northwest, particularly kidney transplantation. Now operating for 40 years, the kidney transplant program is the most experienced of its kind in the region treating more than 100 patients each year.

The recent approval by Medicare comes five years after the Washington Supreme Court approved the liver program’s certificate of need in 2008. The first liver transplant performed at Swedish was in September 2010.
