UAB is one of the top-5 transplant centers in the country conducting more than 400 transplants each year. The Kidney and Pancreas Clinic does 250-300 transplants per year and is visited by more than 10,000 patients annually. Plus, UAB hospital does over 100 liver transplants, 25 heart transplants, and 25 lung transplants each year making UAB the largest transplant center in the southern U.S.
UAB saves and improves hundreds of lives each year. When I first learned I need a heart transplant over five years ago, they were the first transplant center which reviewed my case. However, the Lord worked things out, and I was able to have my transplant near home. Nothing against UAB, but I am grateful for that.
