UC Health will open a liver transplant evaluation clinic on the West Chester Campus, located at Physicians Office South, 7675 Wellness Way, Suite 211, West Chester, Ohio 45069, on Feb. 19, 2021.
“Our patients and partner community physicians expressed a need – and we heard them,” said Shimul A. Shah, MD, UC Health surgeon and the James and Catherine Orr Endowed Chair of Liver Transplantation, director of the Division of Transplantation and professor in the Department of Surgery at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. “Opening this clinic will enable more liver transplant patients to receive world-renowned transplant care that UC Health has to offer – but within their own communities.”
UC Health Transplant has been saving lives and providing second chances to those in need of organ transplantation for more than 50 years. The program offers adult heart, kidney, pancreas, liver and multi-organ transplants, including living donor kidney and living donor liver programs – all of which are ranked nationally, including 13th for liver transplant volume as of December 2020.
The new liver evaluation clinic in West Chester will provide easier access for patients who live in the Middletown, Dayton and Troy, Ohio areas – as well as physicians looking to refer their patients for a transplant evaluation closer to their homes.
Physicians can refer their patients to the clinic, or a patient may self-refer by calling 513-584-9999 to schedule an appointment.
