the first in the world to successfully perform the first human
liver transplant in 1967 and we have continued to excel in
innovation as we provide our unique high acuity skillset admitting
kidney and liver transplant patients directly to our unit from the
OR. These patients are generally staffed in a 2:1, and/or 3:1
ratios to ensure safe, quality care during their most acute phases
of healing. Our Thoracic surgery program is rated as one of the top
programs in the nation, as they perform cutting edge surgeries,

outcomes. We work closely with our providers and multidisciplinary
teams from Transplant, Hepatology, and Thoracic Surgery, to ensure
we are delivering optimal care to all patients throughout their
continuum of care. Our team is passionate and honored to be
specialty trained to care for such a unique population, and
