Transplant Planning

Planning for a heart transplant includes the following:

  • Determining what clothing and personal items will be needed at the hospital.  A list is helpful to avoid last-minute stress.
  • Deciding who will come to the hospital.  Write down phone numbers so they are readily available.
  • Having directions to the MUSC Transplant Center.  Write these down and call us in advance to verify.
  • Stay in touch with the MUSC Transplant Center (1-843-792-9529), especially if:
    • You move and your address changes
    • You go into the hospital
    • You get sick
    • Your insurance changes
    • You go on vacation
