Our Mission

Saint Louis University Hospital exists for the glory of God and the health of God's people in the Judeo-Christian and Jesuit traditions of service to others. We are an academic community dedicated to healing, teaching and research, with a commitment to quality innovative care.

Within this context, the abdominal transplant programs strive to:

  • Provide multidisciplinary and integrated clinical care through the full continuum of progressive organ failure and transplantation

  • Foster fundamental scientific discovery and innovative translational research in transplantation

  • Develop future physician and leaders in transplantation, and build referral base capability to manage patient populations

  • Provide education to our care partners in the community to facilitate excellent patient out comes

  • Provide stewardship for the Donor gift and collaboration with our OPO partners

  • Provide public policy leadership related to organ donation, progressive organ failure and organ allocation.
