Liver Transplant Evaluation Clinic

Local Access to a Valuable Service

Massachusetts General Hospital’s liver transplant program now offers monthly evaluations at Cooley Dickinson Hospital for patients who may be candidates for a liver transplant. One of Mass General’s experienced hepatologists and transplant surgeons will evaluate people who suffer from any of the following conditions:

  • Advanced Hepatitis
  • Cirrhosis
  • Liver Cancer
  • Fatty Liver Disease
  • Other End-stage Liver Disease

The likelihood of being listed for transplant is greatly affected by how close you live to a liver transplant center, so having access to evaluation is a strong step toward getting on a list as an eligible recipient. All patients in need are encouraged to be evaluated; evaluations take place at the Mass General Cancer Center at Cooley Dickinson Hospital in Northampton, and all transplants are performed at the Mass General Transplant Center in Boston.

Cooley Dickinson Health Care became an affiliate of Mass General and the Partners HealthCare System in 2013, and has already developed ongoing exchanges of information, technology, and medical staff in areas including cardiology, stroke, cancer and maternal fetal medicine. Both Cooley Dickinson and the Mass General providers who run the liver transplant evaluation program are excited about being able to offer this service in a location that puts many more potential recipients within reach of evaluation.

Kidney Transplant Evaluation Clinic

A Direct Line to the Largest Transplant Center in New England

Massachusetts General Hospital’s kidney transplant program will also now offer evaluations at Cooley Dickinson Hospital for patients facing end-stage renal disease who may be candidates for a kidney transplant. Mass General performs significantly more kidney transplants than other Massachusetts institutions, and its skilled team of kidney transplant nephrologists, nurses and social workers are very experienced in guiding patients through every stage of care.

Donate LIFE

This month, join Cooley Dickinson in celebrating National Donate Life Month. The month-long celebration showcases various perspectives of those touched by donation and transplantation. As part of National Donate Life Month, we focus local attention on every individual’s power to make LIFE possible by registering their decision to be an organ and tissue donor and learning more about living donation.

National Donate Life Month (NDLM) was instituted by Donate Life America and its partnering organizations in 2003. Celebrated in April each year, NDLM features an entire month of local, regional and national activities to help encourage Americans to register as organ, eye and tissue donors and to celebrate those that have saved lives through the gift of donation.

To register as an organ donor or for more information about how to get involved, please visit www.RegisterMe.org/campaign/MGH
