In the latest national report on organ transplant outcomes, Cedars-Sinai Comprehensive Transplant Center had some of the best one-year survival outcomes of all hospitals in the Los Angeles region, including 90% of liver transplant patients surviving beyond one year, 97% of patients receiving new kidneys, and nearly 75% of lung transplant patients, according to a news release from Cedars-Sinai.

The lung transplant program at Cedars-Sinai is one of the few medical centers in Southern California with Medicare certification, and it accepts some of the sickest, most chronically ill lung patients from around the country. The latest one-year survival outcomes report is encouraging with nearly three-quarters of those transplanted doing well.

“We have assembled a great team of transplant surgeons and researchers here so we can offer patients in critical need of a lung transplant the highest level of care, with the expectation of the best possible outcomes for them,” said Paul Noble, MD, director of the Women’s Guild Lung Institute at Cedars-Sinai and chair of the Department of Medicine.
