Sentara Transplant Center
The Sentara Transplant Center is located at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital. In its nearly 40 years of existence, the transplant center has been a part of more than 2,200 transplants.
As a comprehensive solid organ transplant center, the transplant center is committed to providing value for the residents of Hampton Roads by offering patients in need of solid organ transplantation the best outcomes and superior customer service.
The center currently performs kidney, heart, pancreas and kidney/pancreas transplants. In fact, Sentara was the first in the region to perform kidney, heart and pancreas transplants.
The Nephrology program at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital now ranks No. 48 in the nation, last ranked in 2013. This recognition can be attributed to the success of the Sentara Kidney Transplant Program. Kidney transplant volume at SNGH has nearly doubled within the past three years. In 2016, there were 60 kidney and pancreas transplants. In 2017, there were 101 transplants, and 70 transplants so far through July, 2018.
Sentara is ranked by the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients (SRTR) as one of the top hospitals in the state of Virginia for adult kidney transplant success rates. This means patients live longer, fuller lives after transplantation at Sentara. Each of the organ transplant programs was established in accordance with the mission of Sentara Healthcare to improve the health status for the citizens of Hampton Roads.
