Medical Facilities at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia

In addition to the facilities listed below, the Lung Transplant Program also works in conjunction with other parts of the NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital system.

The NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia Lung Transplant Program's surgeries are performed at state-of-the-art Beverly & Arthur Shorin Comprehensive Outpatient Transplant Center, where patients may take advantage of comprehensive follow-up care, including evaluation and follow-up, blood and diagnostic testing, and infusion treatments for special medications. The Center has its own immunogenetics laboratory for blood and tissue typing and antibody testing to match donor organs to recipients. This laboratory rapidly provides results of blood studies, which is particularly important in monitoring medications. This quick turn-around enables the transplant team to immediately respond to problems that may arise.

The registration and care process at the Shorin Center is managed with the latest technology to enhance convenience and precision.
