Transplant Institute

Patient-focused, groundbreaking medicine

The Allegheny Health Network Transplant Institute is a nationally recognized organ transplantation program that has provided patients with high-quality, innovative, and compassionate care for decades.

We are ranked among the top 10 heart transplant centers nationally and number one in the state. Our heart, kidney, pancreas and liver transplant patients experience the best three-year survival rates in the region.

We want to help ease you through the transplant process and help you to feel secure with your decisions. At the Transplant Institute, we give you not only a reason to hope, but also a reason to have confidence that your life and health can be better. Not just for one day, but for many days to come.

Organ Donation

Lives are transformed by organ donations. A heart transplant allowed one woman to become a motivational speaker. An energetic boy is riding a bike and playing soccer after receiving a liver transplant at 4 months old. A young man’s new kidney let him live to be a husband and a father.


Allegheny Health Network is at the forefront of groundbreaking transplant research. Our team is actively investigating different areas and methods in an effort to enhance quality outcomes for our patients and advance the field of heart and liver transplants.


Allegheny Health Network is proud to support The Center for Organ Recovery Education (CORE), a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting organ donation, education and research for the purpose of saving and improving the quality of life through organ, tissue and corneal transplant.

CORE is one of 58 federally designated agencies in the United States known as a not-for-profit organ procurement organization (OPO). It plays a pivotal role between potential donors and patients awaiting transplantation. In addition to talking with families about the opportunity to donate, CORE coordinates the surgical recovery of organs, tissue and corneas, as well as the computerized matching of donated organs and placement of corneas.

Almost 100,000 kidney transplant candidates in the United States are waiting for an organ donation to become available. For many, the wait can be long and full of uncertainty, anxiety and continued illness.
