Jewish Hospital, a part of KentuckyOne Health, is federally designated by Medicare to perform Heart, Lung, Kidney, Liver and Pancreas transplants, one of a small percentage of hospitals in the United States approved to perform all five solid organ transplants. Working together with physicians from the University of Louisville, our transplant program is known for performing Kentucky's first adult heart, pancreas, heart-lung and liver transplants.
Whether you’re looking for a program to deal with a specific disease, or awaiting a transplant, Jewish Hospital has a caring team designed to walk you through the process, every step of the way.

The Jewish Hospital Trager Transplant Center has moved locations to Frazier Rehab Institute on the Jewish Hospital campus. About 18,000 square feet were renovated at Frazier Rehab Institute to provide a larger space for life-changing transplant work. All of the transplant programs are now in one space with quadruple the number of exam rooms.
Other than changing addresses, nothing about the program, nor the level of care provided, has changed. The new location is:
Frazier Rehab Institute, 3rd Floor
220 Abraham Flexner Way
Louisville, KY 40202
In addition to transplantation, Jewish Hospital Transplant Care is actively involved with efforts to increase awareness of the need for organ donation in collaboration with Kentucky Organ Donor Affiliates. Unfortunately, due to the lack of donated organs, many people never receive lifesaving transplants. Our transplant team encourages live donation, when appropriate.
Although you may never need a transplant, you can pass on the gift of life by registering to become an organ donor today.
