Transplant Center

The MUSC Health Transplant Center offers the most advanced pediatric transplant resources, facilities, and physicians skilled in the latest techniques, all focused on saving and improving the quality of young lives.

MUSC Children’s Hospital provides the perfect setting for young transplant patients, and our staff is specially trained in pediatric care.

Our high-volume pediatric transplant program is the busiest in our United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) region. Pediatric patients on a waiting list for solid organ transplantation receive preference as directed by UNOS. MUSC Health is Magnet Certified and recognized for superior nursing processes and quality patient care. We also offer one of the leading HLA labs in the nation, which provides human leukocyte antigen typing for successful transplantation of the most sensitized patients. The MUSC Children's Health Transplant programs have been designated as Cigna Programs of Excellence from the 2016 Cigna Lifesource Transplant Network Quality Survey of Transplant Programs.

We offer families continuous support as they go through the transplant process. Children throughout the Southeast and across the nation are living normal lives today as a result of receiving pediatric organ transplants at the MUSC Health Transplant Center.
