Pediatric transplants are performed at Primary Children's Hospital in Salt Lake City.
History of Our Program
In 1983, Intermountain Healthcare performed Utah's first solid-organ transplant at LDS Hospital, when a sister donated one of her kidneys to her brother. Since then, our program has distinguished itself as a pioneer in the field of transplantation:
- Utah's first pediatric living donor liver transplant
- Utah's first adult living donor liver transplant
- Utah's first split-liver transplant - one liver spit into two, saving two lives
- World's first program to transplant hepatitis C positive livers into hepatitis C negative patients with excellent outcomes.
We Provide Outstanding Outcomes
Working with Intermountain Donor Services (IDS), the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS), the Organ Donor Alliance and the National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP), Intermountain Transplant Services performs hundreds of transplants each year.
