  • Crisis counseling
  • Community resources
  • Arranging housing and transportation prior to surgery

Pre-Transplant Counseling

Our social workers meet with every transplant candidate prior to surgery to help you and your family handle the stress of illness and the rigors of managing your health while on the donor organ waiting list.

Maintaining a Healthy Lifestyle

Our transplant social workers understand the magnitude of receiving a new liver. It is an amazing gift to receive and they want to help every transplant recipient fulfill the promise of that gift after surgery. Independence after transplantation is our team’s ultimate mission for organ recipients.
