UMC to Close Kidney Transplant Program in May

University Medical Center today announced the permanent closure of its Kidney Transplant Program.

The hospital will close the program to new patients on May 13th, but will continue to assist patients who have already undergone kidney transplants at UMC. The surgical operations portion of the program was suspended earlier this year.

UMC says that all aspects of the program were considered before a decision to close it completely was made.
