The Soham & Shaila Ajmera Family Transplant Centre, in agreement with our partners at Trillium Gift of Life Network and our peer organizations, has made the difficult decision to pause some of the work done by UHN's transplant programs. This is to ensure we have the resources to care for our most critically ill patients, within our program and across our hospital and the health care system.

Please note the following changes in service. We know this pause will be difficult for our patients and their families who will be impacted. We will be reviewing these changes daily and working to reduce any impact on the health of patients within our program.

Kidney Transplant and Pancreas Transplant

  • All living kidney donor activities have been paused.
  • All deceased donor kidney transplant and pancreas transplant activities have been paused, except for highly sensitized or quickly deteriorating patients.

Lung Transplant

  • All lung transplant activities have been paused, except for quickly deteriorating patients.

Heart Transplant

  • All heart transplant activities will continue as usual.

Liver Transplant

  • Living liver donor activities will continue, but the most ill patients will be prioritized.
  • All living liver donors will be screened for COVID-19 before surgery.
  • Deceased donor liver transplant activities will continue as usual.

If you have questions or concerns, please reach out to your Transplant Coordinator for information and support.
