MULTIPLE ORGANS. W-V-U MEDICINE IS THE FIRST HOSPITAL IN THE STATE TO RECEIVE APPROVAL TO OFFER HEART AND KIDNEY TRANSPLANTS UNDER ONE ROOF. THE HOSPITAL SAYS IN THE PAST… THE PATIENTS WANTING A HEART OR KIDNEY TRANSPLANT HAD TO LEAVE THE STATE, NOW, THEY HAVE MORE THAN 25 PATIENTS ON THE HEART TRANSPLANT WAITLIST… AND ARE HOPING TO START ADDING PATIENTS TO THE KIDNEY LIST BY MID NOVEMBER. “It’s very complex to start a kidney transplant program but at the end of the we are the MEDICAL center for the land grant university for the state of WV and we want to be as comprehensive as possible in the way we take care of patients in WV and not have patients have to leave the stae for anything.” this allows them to have a shot, to have a chance to receive advanced care and to be counted and considered because you can’t get a transplant if you’re not on the list and you cannot get on a list if you don’t go to a center. So now we have a center here tha tpeople can go to and get care. MARISA WRIGHT SAYS THE PROCESS TO RECEIVE APPROVAL TO TRANSPLANT KIDNEYS TOOK THE HOSPITAL 22 MONTHS. MARISA WEST VIRGINIA WESLEYAN OFFICIALLY OPENED A UNIQUE TYPE OF ARENA TODAY.
