Center Partners with UVA Health for Smoother Transplant Treatment |  local news

The two providers anticipate the clinics, planned to be held once a month at first but likely increasing in frequency to serve patient needs, will improve organ waitlist times, cut transplant wait times and provide “access to cutting edge clinical trials of the most promising new therapeutics” for hematologic malignancies, according to Wednesday’s announcement.

Centra officials said those clinics will largely serve patients during treatment evaluations and the work-up period leading up to a transplant, then potentially for care after a transplant. The collaboration will provide for seamless transitions of care back to a patient’s Lynchburg-area specialist. As part of the partnership, UVa experts on kidney transplants and malignant hematology, or blood diseases such as leukemia and lymphoma, will hold regular clinics in Lynchburg for patients and their local caregivers to coordinate treatment.

For kidney transplants, a new Lynchburg-based nurse navigator will serve as a care coordinator between UVa’s transplant team and nephrologists who serve patients in Lynchburg, Centra officials said. While Centra has comprehensive hematology and nephrology services, patients needing transplants have needed to travel out of town — many to UVa in Charlottesville — for the procedure itself and multiple appointments surrounding it.
