Why refer your transplant patients to Henry Ford?

Our team works closely with you to ensure a successful outcome for your patient and a seamless continuity of care throughout the transplant process.

There are many reasons why physicians choose Henry Ford for their patients:

  • Comprehensive transplant program: We offer more organ transplant options for adults than any other program in Michigan. Learn more about the transplant services we offer.
  • All-inclusive care: We perform transplants on patients who have been turned away by other centers due to advanced disease, age, body size or previous medical treatments.
  • Shorter wait times: Our FAST Track program allows patients to join national organ transplant wait lists faster. Qualifying transplant candidates may complete the entire pre-transplant evaluation in less than 2 weeks instead of the standard 2 months.
  • Collaborative team approach: Our transplant teams keep you informed of your patient’s progress and ensure a seamless transition of care back to you following transplantation.
  • Successful outcomes: Henry Ford’s transplant success rates are among the best in the country and consistently meet or exceed expected results.
  • Cutting-edge technologies: We use advanced minimally invasive procedures whenever possible. Our approach means a faster recovery and less risk of infection for your patients.
