Dear Transplant Waitlist Candidate,

The Emory Transplant Center has continued to closely monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and its effects in Georgia and the southeast, and we remain committed to your health and well-being.

Based on declining trends in the rates of coronavirus infections and hospitalizations, as well as careful evaluation of the resources that are available within Emory Healthcare, we have decided to re-activate the kidney transplant waitlist effective Tuesday, June 2nd, 2020. All patient who are approved for kidney transplant will be eligible to receive organ offers.

No action is required on your part.

The United Network for Organ Sharing offers a Patient Services Line at 888-894-6361, which can answer questions you may have during this time.

Sincerely,

Your Transplant Team
