Referral Process

A patient’s dialysis clinic or nephrologists office can refer patients to Erlanger who they believe to be potential transplant recipients.  Patients can initiate the referral process by asking their dialysis clinic or nephrologist to refer them. Patients can also self refer by contacting the transplant office and we will contact your dialysis clinic or nephrologist on your behalf. Once a referral is received and insurance is verified, patients are contacted about an orientation session.  Orientations are held in the Transplant Office at least twice a month with flexible days and times to accommodate different dialysis schedules. At the orientation session, you and your family will be educated about the phases of transplantation: evaluation, waitlist, transplant and post-transplantation. Additional information such as multi-listing, types of donors, wait-time transfer, and immunosuppressant medications will be discussed at this time.

Physicians and/or Dialysis Clinic can contact the Pre-Transplant Coordinator: Kelly Looney at
