Swedish is one of seven kidney transplant centers and one of just four liver transplant centers serving the entire Pacific Northwest. Our patients come to Swedish from all over the region and from around the world for the top-level care available at our Organ Transplant Program. Your gift will help support the greatest needs of the program, and ensure transplant patients have access to the best care available.
A major focus of our Swedish Organ Care Research program is the study of liver diseases including nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, nonalcoholic steatohepatitis, cholestatic liver disease and hepatitis. We are also conducting ongoing studies in the immunosuppressive agents and approaches in kidney transplantation and liver failure therapies. Our team is also developing registries and repositories to archive tissue samples and clinical data to enhance research into the diagnosis and treatment of diseases affecting the kidney, pancreas and liver.
