What is the process like once a heart is found for me?

When a potential donor is found, the coordinator will call to notify you (it is very important to keep us aware of any change in address or phone number).  If there is no answer, the coordinator will then page you. Once contact is made, the coordinator will instruct you on where to report and ask you not to have anything else to eat or drink prior to the transplant.

When you come for surgery, please remember to bring:

  • A current medication list
  • A list of your drug allergies
  • Current health insurance information (your most recent insurance cards)
