Our Outcomes

The St. Joseph Hospital Kidney Transplant Center has some of best possible outcomes in Southern California and the nation. Outcomes data are collected by the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients (SRTR). This organization, under contract with the federal government, collects and analyzes data from transplant centers across the U.S. According to the most recent "Center Specific Report" from SRTR (January 13, 2009):

  • St. Joseph Hospital Kidney Transplant Center patients have the highest one-year patient survival and transplant success rates in Southern California as reported on the 10 most recent SRTR reports covering transplants performed since 1/1/2001.
  • St. Joseph Hospital patients have 100% one-year patient survival reported on the 10 most recent SRTR reports covering transplants performed since 1/1/2001.
  • St. Joseph Hospital patients have 100% one-year graft survival reported on the five most recent SRTR reports covering transplants performed since 7/1/2003.
  • The SRTR has calculated that graft survival for St. Joseph Hospital patients has been “statistically higher” than what is expected based on patient and donor risk factors, for transplants performed since 7/1/2003.
  • The average one-year graft survival for all U.S. transplant centers is the highest it has ever been at 92.80% (as of 6/30/07). St. Joseph Hospital's Kidney Transplant Center one-year graft survival rate has maintained a 100% rating.

St. Joseph Hospital Kidney Transplant Center Patients Benefit from One-Year Graft Survival Rates that are among the nation's best.
