Welcome to the Regional Center of Excellence for Transplantation and Kidney Care at ECMC! This center is the result of the merging of two transplant programs—from Buffalo General Hospital and ECMC—into a single streamlined, highly specialized program that offers our patients world class care. The mission of the Center is to provide lifesaving kidney and pancreas transplants, vascular access surgical care, hemodialysis for outpatients and inpatients, and treatment and disease management services for patients with all stages of chronic kidney disease. This concentration of services means a greater number of procedures performed, a high level of expertise among the medical staff, and the most favorable outcomes for renal patients at all levels of care. Patient rooms and visitor areas are beautifully designed and the medical facilities for renal care are the most advanced in the region. The Center of Excellence comprises much of the 10th floor of the medical center as well as the first floor of the dramatic new building on the ECMC campus, home to a state-of-the-art, 36-station outpatient dialysis facility.
