About Us

VA Portland VA Health Care System serves as a national referral site that provides liver and kidney transplantation services. Our liver transplant program has been transplanting since 1988 and we have been offering kidney transplants since April of 2002. By involving the patient in the decision-making process, we make the patient an equal partner in successful outcomes. Our patient and graft survival statistics consistently exceed expected national rates.
