Crozer-Keystone Regional Kidney Transplant Center Now Seeing Patients at Crozer Brinton Lake

To better meet the growing needs of the community, the comprehensive team of the Crozer-Keystone Regional Kidney Transplant Center at Crozer-Chester Medical Center is now seeing patients at Crozer Brinton Lake, Crozer-Keystone’s outpatient facility in Glen Mills.

Specifically, patient consultations as well as pre-and post-transplant care will take place in the surgical specialist suite within the Crozer-Keystone Regional Cancer Center, 500 Evergreen Drive. The Kidney Transplant Center team welcomes consultations with men and women who are suffering from kidney failure and those who are interested in becoming a kidney donor.

At Crozer Brinton Lake, patients will have access to the entire Kidney Transplant Center team - including a transplant surgeon, nephrologist, social worker, nutritionist, financial coordinator and pharmacist - in a single visit. This comprehensive evaluation is the first step in the journey to the transplant.

“Patients will receive the same quality care they have come to expect in our facilities at Crozer, now even closer to home,” explains Cosme Manzarbeitia, M.D., Kidney Transplant Center surgeon.

When making an appointment, patients are encouraged to bring their family and caregivers. This is an opportunity to answer questions and learn about the experience and the program. Appointments are also available to patients who are currently on a waiting list at another hospital. Patients can interact with the entire clinical team and experience Crozer’s patient-centric model of care. Since the program began, many patients have chosen to transfer their time earned at other institutions so that they can be cared for at Crozer.

For information, call (610) 619-8420 or visit www.crozerkidney.org.

The Crozer-Keystone Regional Kidney Transplant Center at Crozer-Chester Medical Center is the newest UNOS-Certified kidney transplant center in the Delaware Valley. The experienced, highly skilled kidney transplant team offers a compassionate, multi-disciplinary team approach to patient care.
