Tampa General Hospital’s Transplant Houses serve as a “home away from home” for outpatient transplant patients who must travel long distances for treatment, checkups and testing at the hospital.
Newly transplanted patients have required follow-up visits two to three times a week during the first two months after organ transplant surgery. Our post-transplant housing is close to the TGH campus and provides convenient access to outpatient services at TGH’s Transplant Institute.
What Our Comfortable Transplant Lodging Features
There are two transplant houses. Patients who are assigned to housing will be sharing the house with other discharged patients. Each house accommodates six adults and features:
- Three bedrooms, each with two beds and a private bathroom
- Two living room areas
- A kitchen
- A dining room
- A screened porch
- A family member or caregiver is encouraged to stay with a patient in post-transplant housing.
"Integral to our recovery, is the gem and blessing of the Transplant House. Not only did I receive world class care while in the hospital, but TGH provided a home to allow for optimal recuperation. We were here with two other families who have touched and enriched our lives tremendously. There aren’t enough words to express the level of gratitude my husband and I have for the TGH family and all you continue to do to help us reach the top of our mountains."
