Kidney Transplant Program
Shorter Kidney Transplant Wait Times
A majority of patients of Hackensack University Medical Center’s Kidney Transplant Program wait less than two years to receive a deceased donor kidney, which is significantly shorter than wait times at other transplant centers in the area.
Transplant success rates at Hackensack University Medical Center are as good as or better than the national average.
Advanced Technology to Improve Outcomes
Hackensack University Medical Center is the first hospital in New Jersey to develop an organ preservation center for organ transplantation. We use the LifePort Kidney Transporter, a machine preservation technology that increases a kidney’s viability and lifespan, as part of routine kidney transplant care. This approach increases the chances for patients at Hackensack to receive new kidneys faster with better outcomes.
