Saint Luke's Mid America Heart Institute’s Heart Transplant Program:

  • Ranks among the top 10 centers nationwide for number of adult heart transplants
  • Is the only active adult heart transplant center in Kansas and the western two-thirds of Missouri
  • Has one of the shortest waiting times for donor hearts in the country
  • Is a Medicare-approved transplant facility

Top-ranked experience

While 80 percent of U.S. cardiac transplant programs perform 20 or fewer heart transplants a year, Saint Luke’s performs well above that number—47 in both 2012 and 2013, and an average of 38+ per year from 2005-2013. 

Shorter waiting times

Our program has one of the shortest waiting times for donor hearts in the country. Between 80 to 90 percent of our patients receive transplants within six months of joining the national waiting list, compared to 30 percent nationally.
