Celebrate the TGH Transplant Institute 50th Anniversary!

50 years ago, on June 18, 1974, the Tampa General Hospital Transplant Institute was forever changed when nephrologists Dr. Alejandro de Quesada, Dr. Dana Shires, Dr. Kahanna and surgeon Dr. Ackermann performed the first-ever kidney transplant in the state of Florida. That team of visionary, innovative physicians was at the forefront of advanced organ disease treatment and set the trajectory for what is now the fourth busiest transplant institute in the country.

Over the past 50 years, TGH has performed over 13,000 heart, lung, liver, kidney and pancreas transplants. As a high-volume, comprehensive transplant center, TGH is a premier destination for multi-organ transplant procedures, and the only hospital in West Central Florida to offer all five organ transplants for adult patients. As we work to improve, extend, and save the lives of people with advanced organ disease, will you consider making a gift to the Transplant Family Fund in honor of the TGH Transplant Institute’s 50th anniversary? 

The TGH Transplant Family fund supports transplant patients with short term medically related expenses such as medications, gas money to travel to appointments, meals, living assistance and more. Gifts to this fund make a significant impact on our transplant patients, allowing them to focus on getting better. The transplant patient assistance fund has helped over 115 patients and their families over the past 7 years.

Please join us in celebrating this momentous anniversary by making a gift to help support those who have been given a second chance at life. Your generosity today will help ensure that all transplant patients who seek financial assistance receive the help they need, allowing them to see many tomorrows. 

Our goal is to raise $13,000 in honor of the number of transplants performed at TGH over the past 50 years. Help us celebrate by making your gift early today!
