Tampa General Hospital's Transplant Houses
Tampa General Hospital¡¯s Transplant Houses serve as a ¡®home away from home¡¯ for outpatient transplant and ventricular assist device (VAD) patients who must travel long distances for treatment, checkups and testing at the hospital.
Newly transplanted patients can have follow-up visits two to three times a week during the first few weeks post discharge.? Having the transplant houses so close to the TGH campus provides convenient access to TGH¡¯s transplant outpatient services.
The transplant houses each accommodate six adults and features three bedrooms, each with a private bathroom, two living room areas, a kitchen and dining room, and a screened porch.? Bedrooms have two beds, so a family member or caregiver can also stay.
Transplant patients interested in getting information about criteria to stay at the TGH Transplant Houses should contact their transplant coordinator.?
