Children’s has patient survival rates that are higher than the national average for one year after transplant and similar for 30 days after transplant.
What does this data mean?
The graph shows the survival rates for our patients at 30 days, one year and three years after their heart transplant. Our one-year survival rate is better than the national average. We have a similar survival rate at 30 days.
Why are patient survival rates important?
High survival rates mean more of our patients are doing well after their transplants. We are always working for 100 percent survival rates at Children’s.
How does Children’s make sure we are giving high-quality care?
