About Us

Since 1982, Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center has been a leader in abdominal organ transplants.  The first kidney transplant was a living related donation from father to daughter.  The Medical Center expanded transplant services to include adult and pediatric kidney/pancreas, liver transplantation, and living donor transplantation.

At Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, you will find the largest, most experienced transplant team and support staff in central Pennsylvania.  In addition, the transplant team has access to a wide variety of medical and surgical services to support any special care needs that may arise following transplantation.
