Organ transplant patients experience exceptional care and outcomes here at Virginia’s #1 hospital.* Come join our team of more than 20 physicians, dedicated nurses, coordinators and care providers. UVA’s first organ transplant was performed in June 1967. Today, we are Virginia’s only comprehensive transplant center, having successfully performed more than 5,000 transplants. We are also leaders in research, taking what we learn from bedside to bench, to continually advance patient care. And we are Magnet®-designated.

The types of transplants we perform at UVA’s Charles O. Strickler Transplant Center include:

  • Liver
  • Heart
  • Lung
  • Kidney
  • Small bowel
  • Pancreas
  • Bone marrow

Now, we are undergoing the largest expansion in our history—a 425,000-square-foot, $450-plus million investment that includes an expanded emergency department/Level I trauma center, new operating rooms and a new six-story tower that will allow us to expand critical service lines, including transplant. We want you to be an integral part of that growth.

UVA has two exciting UVA transplant initiatives:

  • Paired Kidney Exchange program—Seeks and finds alternative matches, regionally and nationally, for both the donor and the recipient, should they prove incompatible for each other.
  • Ex Vivo Lung Perfusion technology—Effectively doubles the time to harvest and prepare lungs for transplant from six hours to 12, allowing UVA to look nationwide—instead of just close to home—for the best possible match.

Here, you’ll be part of a collaborative team of transplant specialists. You’ll have a voice in patient care decisions, as well as access to the latest clinical trials and medical technologies. As Virginia’s #1 hospital, it is our goal to be the safest place in the nation in which to provide and receive care.
