Advantages of kidney transplantation

Medical studies consistently show that kidney transplantation results in the best outcomes and greater quality of life. Two things set the Ascension St. Vincent transplant program apart from the 269 other transplant programs in the U.S. First, shortest wait times on average in Indiana and one of the shortest in the U.S. Second, this program always puts the patient first.

What to expect: No two patients are the same and each has unique needs. We focus on patient-centered care and know them by name, like family.
