As soon as the transplant surgeon and cardiologist accept an offer for a heart, the transplant coordinator on call will call you by phone. Please ensure we have all your phone numbers so we can reach you at any time. If you should move or get a new phone number, be sure to notify the transplant team as soon as possible so that we can update our records.
Be prepared ahead of time to leave the house within 15 minutes. It is helpful to have a bag packed. If you are coming from out of town, you should have established travel plans. Remember, do not give your child anything to eat or drink after we call you in for transplant.
