What Are the Best Hospitals for Liver Transplants?

Oschner Health Systems in New Orleans, Louisiana was ranked number one in the country for liver transplants by CareChex, according a news release on the Oschner website. Stanford Children's Health is also top-rated.

A listing of hospitals that offer liver transplants is available on the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients. The website offers information that considers the patient age and whether a living donor or deceased donor was used. The number of transplants each hospital has done and their survival rate ranks for various categories is available. Finding an experienced hospital with a "higher than expected" rating for the age group and donor type is a good way to find skilled care.
