Royal Prince Alfred (RPA) Hospital provides kidney and liver transplant services to patients.
Our RPA Hospital team builds enduring relationships with patients that start in the very first consultation and continue for the rest of their lives.
RPA Hospital has a long history of pioneering transplant services. In 1967, the first deceased donor kidney transplant in Australia was performed at RPA Hospital. Since then, more than 3,000 kidney transplant procedures have been performed at RPA Hospital and the waiting list continues to grow.
In 1986, RPA Hospital established the Australian National Liver Transplantation Unit (ANTLU) - the largest transplantation program in Australia. Since then we have combined with The Children's Hospital in Westmead, and have performed more than 2,000 liver transplants.
Our team is also actively involved in research to improve patient's care and outcome. Our Centre for Organ Assessment, Repair, and Optimisation (COARO) has recently won the inaugural 2023 NSW Health Research Award on the project "Achieving the Unrealised Potential of Transplantation".
