Transplant Services 

The Baylor Annette C. and Harold C. Simmons Transplant Institute at Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas and Baylor Scott & White All Saints Medical Center Fort Worth is an internationally renowned destination for transplant care. Many of our transplant programs feature shorter than average wait times, as well as above average outcomes, especially for complex cases.  

As one of the busiest multi-specialty transplant centers in the world, Baylor Simmons Transplant Institute is home to a highly experienced team of physicians on the medical staff and other clinicians who provide comprehensive transplant services. Our transplant services combine advanced clinical research and innovative approaches to provide quality results and outstanding service to patients and their family.

Trust the Leader – Baylor Dallas

A high-volume center with excellent outcomes, Baylor Dallas is widely regarded as one of the leading multi-specialty transplant centers in the nation. Living proof that the more times a hospital performs a procedure, the better its success rate.

We Make it Simple

Just a quick four-hour direct flight from Logan International to DFW Airport and you’re minutes from Baylor Dallas. Patients and their caregivers are invited to stay in affordable comfort at the Twice Blessed House, a nearby community of 44 apartments dedicated to serving the needs of pre- and post-transplant patients. After the patient is listed, we can help them find a place to stay, such as an apartment or weekly hotel, until a heart comes in.

Post Transplant Recovery

After their transplant, patients may recover at the Twice Blessed House or at another place to their choosing. Typically, Baylor Dallas will provide post transplant care throughout the patient’s the entire first year unless special arrangements are set up with the referring transplant team. This is determined on a case-by-case basis.
