UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL LIVER TRANSPLANT PROGRAM, LED BY RUTGERS NEW JERSEY MEDICAL SCHOOL PHYSICIANS, REMAINS RANKED AS NO. 1 IN THE TRI-STATE REGION

For Second Consecutive Evaluation Period, New Jersey’s First Liver Transplant Center is Among the National Leaders in One-Year Survival Rate

For the second consecutive evaluation period, the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients (SRTR) has rated the liver transplant program at the University Hospital
Center for Advanced Liver Diseases and Transplantation, as the regional leader in one-year survival rates.

The Center is led by the nationally-recognized physicians at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School. With an estimated one-year survival rate of 98.75%, the Center was rated as one of the top centers from all hospitals in the New York Tri-State area of New Jersey, New York and Connecticut.

University Hospital is ranked No. 4 in the country – a mere 1.25 percentage points behind national co-leaders University Hospitals of Cleveland and Temple University Hospital in Philadelphia.
Montifiore Medical Center in the Bronx and New York University Langone Medical Center in Manhattan are the closest-ranking New York Tri-State area hospitals.

The Center for Advanced Liver Diseases and Transplantation at University Hospital and Rutgers New Jersey Medical School is the first in New Jersey and one of 61 such centers nationally. Since it opened in 1989, the center has performed more than 1,500 liver transplant surgeries, including over 80 transplants in the last two years alone.

The SRTR, operated by the Chronic Disease Research Group, a division of the Hennepin Healthcare Research Institute, is a federally supported program. Evaluations of liver transplant
programs are released twice a year, in January and July.

“We are proud that SRTR continues to recognize us as one of the top liver transplant programs in the region and one of the highest ranked programs in the entire nation,” said Dr.
Nikolaos Pyrsopoulos, Medical Director of the Liver Transplant Program at University Hospital. “The awareness generated by the SRTR ranking helps patients know that excellent care is available in Newark, thanks to the accomplished team at University Hospital and our healthcare partners at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School.”

“Our exceptional transplant outcome data showcase the skill and dedication of the University Hospital transplant surgeons and physicians, but even more importantly are evidence of the
seamless integration of an outstanding multidisciplinary team,” said Dr. James V. Guarrera, Program Director of Liver Transplantation at University Hospital.

“This ranking reinforces what many patients already know – the Center for Advanced Liver Diseases and Transplantation is doing amazing work to save lives of people in our community
throughout the region,” said Shereef Elnahal, MD, MBA, President and CEO of University Hospital. “We are thankful for the leadership of Drs. Pyrsopoulos and Guarrera, our dedicated hospital care team members, and the active support of our partners at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School.”
