Transplant House provides transplant patients and their caregivers with a home-away-from-home while they are in Seattle to await or recover from a life-saving transplant."
History: Transplant House was founded in 2006 to help keep transplant recipients healthy and their families strong by providing safe, convenient, affordable housing for pre- and post-transplant recovery. Currently we support 100+ transplant patients from Washington, Oregon, Alaska, and Montana annually. Because of patients' immune-suppressed state, sterile living environments are required to reduce risk of infection. Transplant House fills an important gap in housing by providing apartments that are furnished, cleaned, and maintained following strict protocols established by the University of Washington Medical Center.
What We Do: We offer significantly discounted leases on over 30+ housing units that are a short drive/ride from the University of Washington Medical Center, Seattle Children’s Hospital, Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, Swedish and Virginia Mason hospitals.
