Since our first kidney transplant in 1972, Virginia Mason, in Seattle, has performed more than 2,000 kidney transplants. Today, we perform an average of 90 to 100 transplants per year. In 1992, we began our pancreas transplant program.
We serve a large area, providing transplants for patients in Alaska, Montana and Washington. Seventy percent of our patients are referred to us from outside the immediate western Washington area. We have designed our program to serve the special needs of patients, families and referring physicians who live great distances from us.
The mission of the Transplant Center at Virginia Mason is to focus on each patient as an individual, while retaining superb results and the best long-term outcomes possible. We want to efficiently build a bridge to better health and the highest quality of life for each recipient. Virginia Mason prides itself in being a national leader in patient safety and integrated health care. We have learned from nearly 40 years of performing transplants at Virginia Mason that the key to success is helping you learn as much as possible.
