Let’s talk about Centers of Excellence

Center of Excellence is a term well known to most transplant families.  It is defined in Wikipedia as ” a shared facility or an entity that provides leadership, evangelization, best practices, research, support and/or training for a focus area. ”  But for most of us it is just a list of the centers that we can take our children to for transplant.

We are including a list of the four major insurance carriers centers for reference.  If there are other centers you do not see included that you would like us to add, please feel free to contact us.
