MUSC Health welcomes organ transplant patients referred from health care providers in our surrounding communities and across the nation. We’re committed to creating a productive relationship with you to help your patient achieve the best health possible.

As the only solid organ transplant center in South Carolina, MUSC Health combines surgical expertise with dedication to personalized patient care. According to the latest data from the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients (SRTR), our surgical outcomes match or exceed national averages for each type of organ transplant we perform.

To better serve you, there are several ways to begin the organ transplant referral process.


MEDULINE, MUSC Health’s dedicated consultation and patient referral line, is available to you 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Please call MEDULINE at 843-792-2200 or toll-free at 800-922-5250 to speak with our representatives.
