Welcome to the Abbott Northwestern Hospital/Minneapolis Heart Institute® Transplant Program. You have joined a small but growing number of people given this special gift.
The goal of a heart transplant is to both extend your life and improve your quality of life. The current 1-year survival rate for adults who received a new heart is 90.2 percent. The 1-year survival rate through Abbott NorthwesternHospital’s program is 91.7 percent.
Complete national and hospital-specific statistics are updated every January and July. Ask your transplant coordinator for details if you would like to see the information.
Heart transplant costs are an accepted surgery by Medicare and most insurance providers.
