End stage kidney disease is a condition that occurs when your kidneys are no longer able to properly work. Kidney transplant is an operation in which a functioning kidney from a living or deceased donor is surgically placed in your body. The transplant kidney takes over the function of your diseased or non-functioning kidney.
The Kidney Transplant Program is part of a multi-organ transplant center at Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center & Children's Hospital that has provided the option of transplantation as treatment for end-stage renal disease for more than 1,000 patients since 1981.
Along with long-term care and guidance of kidney transplant patients, we provide follow up care for liver and pancreas patients. The program is a member of the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) and certified by the Health Care Financing Administration (HCFA).

Candidate referrals are accepted from physicians throughout the states of Washington, Idaho, Montana, and Oregon, as well as physicians from outside this service area. Patient self-referrals are also accepted.
