I can easily imagine the most frightening words you might hear your cardiologist say are, “You need a heart transplant.

Even the thought of undergoing such a major surgery sends chills down my spine.  Many of the patients who need a heart transplant have known for quite awhile that their heart was failing.  Luckily for those people, they have time to cope with the idea of having a new heart put in their body.  They are also blessed with the ability to find the best place to have their heart transplant surgery.

Not all heart transplant centers are created equal…  Some are high volume and are considered experts in heart transplantation.  Others are low volume and just getting started with their program.  The US government has a quality compliance program in which they evaluate the Medicare-approved centers.  The following is a list of ONLY Medicare-approved transplant centers as of September 2010.  There are other centers that are new and may not have been approved by Medicare yet.  The complete list with addresses  from the Medicare website can be found at https://www.cms.gov/CertificationandComplianc/Downloads/ApprovedTransplantPrograms.pdf
