Transplant Center

The Virginia Mason Franciscan Health Transplant Center in Seattle is a leader in kidney and pancreas transplant procedures in the Puget Sound region.

Virginia Mason Franciscan Health is also the first medical center in the Pacific Northwest to earn designation as a Donor Care Network Center of Excellence by the National Kidney Registry. The Donor Care Network is comprised of transplant programs across the United States that have met rigorous standards and are committed to specific actions that support quality clinical outcomes and patient experiences.

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 Franciscan Health 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 Franciscan Health 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 Franciscan Health that the key to success is helping you learn as much as possible.
