Iowa Methodist Transplant Center Wait Times Drastically Lower Than Other Centers

Iowa Methodist Medical Center kidney transplant waiting times are drastically lower than other Midwestern and national transplant centers.  Our high-quality patient-centered care is proven by our graft survival rate of 98%.  We send monthly updates to dialysis centers and nephrology offices.

Iowa Methodist transplanted patients in 12.7 months on average compared to the regional average of 27 months and national of 54.3 months.

Iowa Methodist is transplanting patients with advanced age and higher BMI.  Thirty-three percent of the patients transplanted at the center were over the age of 65. We encourage patients to be listed at multiple transplant centers.
