Heart Transplant

About Our Heart Transplant Program

Baptist Memorial Hospital was the first to establish an adult heart transplant program in the Mid-South and remains the only adult heart transplant program in the Mid-South area today.

The adult heart transplant program became Medicare-certified in 1996, making it the only such certified adult heart transplant provider in Memphis. In 2001, the Baptist Heart Institute opened.

Located at Baptist Memorial Hospital-Memphis, the Baptist Heart Institute combines all cardiovascular services on one hospital campus to support high-quality care, research, education and data management. As of September 2016, Baptist physicians have performed over 360 heart transplants.
