Trager Transplant Center Moves to New Location, Expands Services

KentuckyOne Health is pleased to announce the relocation of the Trager Transplant Center, one of the leading providers of organ transplantation in the country. The center, a joint program with the University of Louisville School of Medicine and KentuckyOne Health, is moving from its current location at Jewish Hospital to the newly-renovated third floor of the Frazier Rehab Institute building, to allow for expansion and improved patient care.
The new space will provide a larger area for the transplant department, including 16 exam rooms, four consultation rooms, and additional space for the department staff and transplant doctors. The project involved the renovation of 18,000 square feet of space, and will allow the solid organ transplant programs to be in one place.

The Trager Transplant Center is nationally recognized for performing Kentucky’s first adult heart, pancreas, heart-lung and liver transplants, as well as the first minimally invasive kidney donation in Kentucky.

Currently, the transplant department resides in approximately 10,000 square feet of space at Jewish Hospital, and only has six exam rooms. The move to Frazier Rehab Institute will allow for better patient flow, improved patient satisfaction, and will alleviate congestion. Construction of the new space began in January 2016.
