Whole Person Care

Science has long made a close connection with the brain and the gut. We believe in treating the whole patient: body, mind and spirit. Our prehabilitation program helps waitlisted patients prepare psychologically and physically for their transplant surgery through counseling and education. Our support groups help patients connect with others who are on the same care journey.
