We do more organ transplants than any other hospital in the nation.
And it’s not nearly enough.

Learn how to be an organ donor

NewYork-Presbyterian is an international leader in the transplantation of organs including the heart, lung, liver, kidney, intestine, and pancreas. Across our two transplant program campuses NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Irving Medical Center and NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center—we have performed the most transplant surgeries in the United States.

With programs that have existed for decades, we are ranked as one of the top organ transplant programs in the country for having better than expected outcomes. People come to us from around the world for our expertise and our reputation for providing many types of transplants more quickly than other centers.

The Health Resources and Services Administration, a government agency, has recognized NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital and its Regional Hospital Network for our outstanding efforts to promote donation awareness and donor registration. Five NewYork-Presbyterian campuses — Allen Hospital, Columbia University Irving Medical Center, Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital, Lawrence Hospital, and Weill Cornell Medical Center — earned platinum recognition for increasing the number of people who register as organ, eye, and tissue donors.
