East Texas Medical Center Tyler’s kidney transplant program was honored with a bronze award from the Department of Health and Human Services this week at the Seventh National Learning Congress.

The award ceremony was held in Grapevine and recognized hospitals, programs and individuals from across the nation in the areas of donation and transplantation. The HHS transplant division analyzed the 266 individual kidney transplant programs across the nation. The award process measured exceptional outcomes in post-transplant survival rates, wait-list mortality rates and deceased donor transplantation rates.

No program received a gold award and15 received a silver award. ETMC Tyler was one of 56 programs that received a bronze award. Only 26 percent of the kidney programs in the country were honored.

“This award is a tribute to our outstanding kidney transplantation team,” said Dr. Steven Potter, medical director of the ETMC Transplant Center. “We are honored to receive this recognition.”

Since the program began in 1987, ETMC has performed 607 kidney transplants.
