For nearly 30 years, Mary Fleischman of Pewaukee, Wis., has traveled to University Hospital in Madison for follow-up liver transplant care. Now, her transplant team is available just down the road in Waukesha.

 

"It's so convenient,"says Mary. "The clinic is not even 5 minutes from my house, and it's in the same location as my primary care physician.”

 

Thanks to the UW Health Transplant Program's kidney and liver transplant regional clinics, many transplant patients throughout Wisconsin and northern Illinois have access to UW Health experts closer to home. The liver clinic in Waukesha just opened in October, and already it has become popular for patients like Mary who live in southeastern Wisconsin. UW Health created a partnership with Waukesha-based ProHealth Care and is seeing patients both pre- and post-transplant.

 

We are focused on patient access and service excellence,"says Luis Fernandez, MD, director of the UW Health Liver Transplant Program who is seeing patients at the clinic in Waukesha.

 

"This clinic will allow patients on liver transplant waiting lists at the Milwaukee transplant centers the opportunity to easily list with UW Health as well, improving their odds of receiving a liver transplant,"adds Jaime Myers, RN, MSN, CCTC, manager of UW Health's liver transplant program.

 

Mary has trusted her physicians and other caregivers at UW Health ever since her transplant in 1988. "I couldn't imagine going anywhere else for my follow-up care than UW Health,"she says. "I have complete confidence in the team.”
