St. Vincent’s Opens Kidney Transplant Center In Portage

The new center will be in Portage.

The latest figures show the average wait time for a kidney transplant in Indiana is 53 months, but a new facility in the state will help reduce that time.

Officials from St. Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis announced the opening of a new 8,000 square-foot kidney transplant outpatient center in Portage. They say the new center will prevent patients from having to travel to Indianapolis for pre-surgery appointments. It’s also part of St. Vincent’s partnership with Cleveland Clinic for kidney and pancreas transplants.

Statistics show that more than 107,000 patients are on the waiting list for kidney transplants nationwide, about 1,300 of those patients live in Indiana.
