Children’s has an average length of stay of eight days for kidney transplant recipients.

What does this data mean?
This graph shows how long our patients stay in the hospital after their kidney transplant surgery. Our patients stayed in the hospital for an average of about one week after their transplants.

Why is the length of stay important?
Length of stay shows how quickly patients heal after their surgeries. Our goal is to get patients back home with their family and friends as soon as possible.

How does Children’s make sure we are giving high-quality care?

  • After his transplant, our team checks each child closely to help less the chance of complications, such as rejection.
  • Our kidney transplant team teaches families about how to care for their children before, during and after their transplants.
