Prisma Health’s new kidney transplant program at Greenville Memorial Hospital has received approval to perform kidney transplants by the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS), which oversees organ procurement and allocation nationally. The Prisma Health Transplant Center will be the only transplant center in the Upstate area of South Carolina and will bring leading-edge care to kidney disease patients who previously had to travel more than 100 miles for transplant-related procedures.
Last year, more than 5,700 people became living donors. Living donors can be part of the solution to solve the donor shortage and possibly save the life of someone who wishes to pursue a transplant. Learn more about the different options for living donation- Directed Donation, Kidney-paired Donation, and Non-direct Donation. What can YOU make possible?
