transplant centers in illinois
There are nine medical centers in the state of Illinois that perform kidney transplants. Use the information below to find the center nearest you and learn about each facility. If you live outside of Illinois and do not feel any of these centers are close enough to you, consider visit the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network (OPTN) website. Once you are on the site, follow these steps:
Select "Transplant Centers by Organ" under Member Type
Select "Kidney" for Organ Type
Select your state or region
To Join the Waitlist: If you are interested in joining the transplant waitlist at any of these centers, we recommend you speak to your healthcare professional for a referral, or simply contact the center itself and schedule an appointment for evaluation. If you are unsure which center you might like to be listed at, remember: you CAN be listed at multiple transplant centers (learn more about listing at multiple centers).
To Donate a Kidney: If you are interested in becoming a living donor and donating a kidney to a patient in need, simply call the transplant center of your choice, and ask to speak to a "Kidney Transplant Coordinator" - or to someone on the center's staff who can help. Typically, counselors will be registered nurses. They will usually begin the donor process with a phone interview, followed by an in-person consultation.
