At UC San Diego Health’s Center for Transplantation, you receive the highest-quality care in the safest healthcare environment. 

Our patient and transplant organ (graft) survival rates exceed the national average for all programs, placing us among the nation's best transplant centers by the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients (SRTR). 

To help you make an informed decision about where to seek an organ transplant, we provide outcome data for each of our transplant programs. This information helps you as a consumer, and it helps us continuously strive to improve the care we provide.
