Clinical Team

 Our Staff

Liver transplant nurse coordinators
The transplant coordinators act as your case managers before your transplant. They will help you get ready for your transplant, assist you during your hospital stay and help manage your care after your transplant.

Physician extenders
Our physician extenders provide an essential link between the inpatient and outpatient teams by communicating regularly with the surgeons, pharmacist, social worker and outpatient coordinator to implement your personalized care plan.

Social workers
Our social workers find you the support you need from your community and family members. Your social worker can help locate agencies that provide temporary housing, travel arrangements, emotional and financial support, medications and rehabilitation placement.

Pharmacist
The pharmacist will monitor your medications and adjust your dosage to make sure you are getting the greatest benefit, as well as monitor you for possible drug interactions. The pharmacist is available to answer any questions or concerns you may have about your medications.

Dietitians
Dietitians help the doctors decide what diet you need while you are in the hospital after surgery. If you have special needs or need to be on a special diet when you return home after surgery, a dietitian will assist you.
